More from the Art ‘Round Town site: As a thriving creative community rich in history, Portsmouth retains and honors its past while continuously cultivating an ebullient, exciting contemporary arts scene. Within its early-nineteenth century brick facades, cobblestone sidewalks, and urban streetscapes, the collective Portsmouth art galleries represent the work of international and national artists from as distant as Europe, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles and as near as regional New England. The broad scope of these gallery exhibitions offer you the representational and recognizable, as well as the abstract and avant-garde. Whether it’s your destination for dinner or a summer sojourn, this prestigious community built upon arts and culture will satiate your cravings for original art, food, music and fashion.

Special Programming – Book Signing 6pm

Join us to celebrate the anniversary of the Portsmouth Peace Treaty with a short talk by author Anne Gordon Perry, whose new book Unseen Witness: Sarah Farmer & The Portsmouth Peace Treaty has just been released. Hear about how historical accounts and photographs contribute and add accuracy to a fictional story set on September 5, 1905—the day of the Treaty signing—centered around the true story of how Sarah Farmer became the only woman to witness the historic signing. New research has recently emerged, adding detailed authenticity to a story previously unproved.
