OUR STORY

FOLLOW US

The Place Studio & Gallery opened in October 2014 with the idea of providing a sense of place for the community of Concord, NH and surrounding area by offering the place to be downtown – a place to slow down and tap into your own creativity, to gather to be inspired by other artists. 

 

Located in downtown Concord, The Place Studio & Gallery is a relaxed, eclectic drop-in do-it-yourself art and craft business offering a variety of activities, as well as an educational place for people to learn about making and appreciating art, while providing the opportunity to buy art at reasonable prices. The Place Studio & Gallery is independently run by a trained art educator with over a decade of experience coordinating, developing and implementing engaging learning experiences in museums and schools.

A studio and gallery in the heart of downtown Concord, NH

When you go to a community with layers of history,

with charm and character, where many people gather,

you react emotionally and psychologically.

That feeling, which everybody has experienced, is known as ‘sense of place’.

Robert Steuteville, “Why 'place' is the new American dream.”
