Art 3 Gallery at 44 West Brook St. holds an opening reception for its “Diversions” exhibit of work from more than 75 artists. Meet artists involved in Manchester Artist Association Gallery’s current “Mother Earth” group show at 1528 Elm St. The Smoked Kielbasa band with Jazzy Deb Murby performs at the Art on the Wall at City Hall Gallery, where Diane Terragni’s jewelry and David Preece’s paintings are exhibited. Paintings by Ben Demers and Chris Fram are also displayed at 1 City Hall Plaza, along with historic photos of L. E. Bagley Co., Inc. Framers Market at 1301 Elm St. hosts an opening reception for an exhibit of watercolors by Manchester artist Kathy Tangney. 

Langer Place at 55 S. Commercial St. has several creative tenants, including East Colony Fine Art Gallery, which holds the reception for its “Petals2Paint” exhibit of floral arrangements interpreting member artists’ work. See Adrienne Silversmith’s new studio or Mt. Everest expedition photos at Althea Haropulos’ studio in Langer. (Proceeds benefit children’s programs in Nepal.) Sheehan Academy of Painting holds its first student exhibition.

Both the SEE Science Center and Millyard Museum are at 200 Bedford St. SEE’s new exhibits include Lux Rota Light Sculpture, and it is home to a scale LEGO model of Amoskeag Millyard. Sample food featured on The Chef’s Plate at MCAM TV-23 studios (540 Commercial St.).

Both are free to attend.

• Hotline: Professional New Hampshire artists can take advantage of a pilot hotline for advice during rough economic times through June 26 (although it’s closed during the week of May 18). The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts launched the toll-free line, 1-888-309-9555, which is staffed Mondays from 9 to 11 a.m. and Fridays from 1 to 3 p.m. by Visual Arts Associate Julie Mento, according to a release. Healthcare for artists, risk management, professional development, legal resources, current calls for art and networking are examples of topics up for discussion. “Artists are encouraged to share their own advice on the New Hampshire Artists’ Hotline Facebook page,” according to the release.
