Ad Hoc Art Gallery opens

BELLOWS FALLS — The public is invited to take part in welcoming a new art-based business to Rockingham by joining the official grand opening of Ad Hoc Art Gallery at 23 Canal St. in Bellows Falls.

The grand opening will be Friday, Nov. 17, from 5 to 8 p.m. Original artwork in many mediums will be displayed, and refreshments will be served.

The Gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and all other days by appointment.

The micro-coop space was formed by three local artists who needed a centralized and active location to create and share their work.

Emmett S. Dunbar is a photo-poet, farmer, and project manager living in South Londonderry. His inspiration from nature along with his passion for farming is expressed through images from different life adventures.

Garrison Buxton is owner/co-founder of Ad Hoc Art, a multi-faceted creative organization committed to highlighting street art, pop art, illustration, graffiti, and printmaking.

Buxton graduated with an MFA from Brooklyn's Pratt Institute, where he taught printmaking until starting Peripheral Media Projects and Ad Hoc Art in Bushwick, Brooklyn. He currently lives and works in Londonderry and executes public and private art projects in New York City and beyond.

MC Noyes is a visual artist living and working in Rockingham who is known for his oil paintings of the landscape, which are alive with color and movement, expressing feelings of nostalgia, doubt, and hope.

He graduated with a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has lived and worked in Boston and New York City. When he isn't painting, promoting, or writing, Noyes can be found pursuing his passions of pastry, chocolate making, music, and travel.
