Chester College Opens Student Gallery at The Coffee Factory
Prints, Painting, & Photography, the first exhibition in Chester College of New England's new Witherill Gallery at The Coffee Factory, will open on Thursday, April 16, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Students from the creative writing program will be reading poetry as part of the event.
The Witherill Gallery is a student-run gallery designed to exhibit work by Chester College students inside The Coffee Factory in Derry. A gallery committee is working with owners Kevin and Gladys Yorke to plan exhibitions. The relationship between the business and the college started when a Chester College student started to attend weekly poetry open mics. From there, the Yorkes expressed an interest in giving Chester College students the opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork.
Prints, Painting, & Photography continues through May 5. The Witherill Gallery at The Coffee Factory is located at 55 Crystal Ave. in Derry, NH. Hours are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 8 .m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. For more information, email the gallery committee.
