In honor of Portsmouth’s 400th year anniversary, 3S Artspace held an open call for submissions by artists living or working in Portsmouth today. There was no shortage of talent and creativity. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the extraordinary artists selected to exhibit in the Lobby Gallery in 2023. All exhibited works are available for purchase, with revenue supporting both the artists and 3S.

Artist Statement
Collaborative painting allows participants to express themselves as individuals as they contribute to the whole. This activity raises awareness of the subject and fosters dialogue, connection and the spirit of community.

When we create together we:

  • gather
  • share stories
  • learn about each other
  • connect
  • strengthen community-become part of something bigger

The artwork is a representation of the subject and a collective expression of the community that created it. As an exhibit, Growing Up Portsmouth tells a story and legacy that captures this moment in a shared place and history.

Eric Gold Bio

Through his inclusive and collaborative painting events across the US and Canada, Eric integrates the expressions of hundreds of participants. The subjects of his artworks range from animals in our environment, to locally celebrated community members, to iconic individuals embedded into the fabric of our society. Recent artworks are on permanent display at the Seacoast Science Center, Rye, NH), the Center for Wildlife (Wells, Maine), and 8 CBC offices across Canada.
