When The Seacoast Artist Association Art Gallery moved to its new location at 130 Water Street, right in the heart of downtown Exeter, they had more room – a lot more room. Eight hundred square feet of it was designated to be The Gallery Shop. Four artisans signed on to share this space and fill it with their works.
