Climate change is by and large an issue discussed by scientists, but a current show at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth is devoted to the topic. 

“Rise: Climate Change in Our World” is an exhibition featuring work by current students, alumni, technical staff and faculty from UNH.  The UNH art department collaborated with NextGen Climate NH, an environmental advocacy organization and 3S Artspace. 

The exhibit, which was a year in the making, will run until November 12th.  The gallery is open on Tuesday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday from noon to 5:00 p.m.

3S Artspace is a non-profit, alternative arts organization that combines a mid-size, flexible performance space with a large, non-commercial gallery and a restaurant (Block Six) that serves locally-sourced foods. 

Located in downtown Portsmouth, 3S is a relative newcomer to the art scene, but is already a magnet for innovative music and events (like the monthly Drink & Draw session).
