Fry Fine Art has decided to offer rotating studio space for an artist in the Gallery at 36 Grove St. Peterborough, NH to showcase the many, talented, local artists the region has to offer. The space will allow an individual artist use the gallery space for a period of time to showcase their work. Peter Pelletier was an influential figure in the art community and the Monadnock region. Peter owned an art gallery in Peterborough and was an instrumental and an active participant in Peterborough's Annual Art's Auction. His knowledge and ease of presence created a generation of new art lovers and collectors. Because of this, and the significant influence he had on the art collection of the Fry’s this studio space is being dedicated to his memory
Pelletier, a lifelong resident of Peterborough was a father, husband, teacher, and lover of art whose dedication to his family, hometown, and a life of learning is alive in all those he touched.
His legacy is the inspiration for our new gallery space and we hope you join us as we celebrate Peter Pelletier with the grand opening reception for Dave Dodge: Good Land, Sea, and Fresh Air in the all new Pelletier Studio.
David Dodge paints representational landscapes, primarily outdoors, and is a continual student of nature and traditional landscape art.
He is a past President of Monadnock Art/Friends of the Dublin Art Colony; a member of Left Bank Artists Group; The New Hampshire Art Association; and was involved in the start-up of The Healing Art Gallery at Monadnock Community Hospital.
