Community Partners

We partner with many organizations in the Upper Valley, and beyond, to deliver engaging and sustainable outreach opportunities.

AVA Gallery and Art Center

As a catalyst for creativity, AVA cultivates an openness of space and mind to inspire, nurture, and showcase the artistic spirit.

Our Vision

AVA Gallery and Art Center serves its mission by maintaining powerful exhibitions, vibrant artist studios, and offering dynamic educational programming for artists of all ages and abilities. With an emphasis on building community, AVA also hosts and promotes special events that foster interaction between artists, patrons of the arts and the general public. All of our work is done with the priority of environmental sustainability and with the recognition that art enriches our lives.

Montshire Museum

We have developed numerous programs with the Montshire, some of which were through federally funded programs (such as the Howard Hughes grant, the Design it! Build it! summer program, and others) others on an ad-hoc basis.

Each year, the Montshire runs Astronomy Day and reach out to the Physics and Astronomy program for interpreters and explainers.
