Several locations in New London will feature micro-galleries for the Center for The Arts Lake Sunapee Region’s First Friday Gallery Night.

On Friday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. there will be opening receptions for each of the exhibits, which will remain on display through April 30.

The New London Inn will feature the photography of Iris Fisher-McMorrow. There will be an artist talk at 6 p.m.

Bar Harbor Bank and Trust on Main Street will be showcasing the abstract work of Hugo Anderson. His series, “Growing Up with the Atomic Bomb,” reflects on his childhood memories of growing up in Roswell, N.M., in the shadow of the nuclear age. He reflects on stories he heard, “duck and cover” drills in school and working on a ranch near a missile silo in Colorado in the ’60s. He recalls the development and testing of the atomic bomb as 2020 is the 75th anniversary of the deployment of the bombs that ended World War II. He will give a gallery talk at 6:30 p.m.

The Blue Loon Bakery will feature the paintings of Alan Shulman. He grew up in New York City, where his parents brought him and his sister to museums and galleries most weekends. He had a career in architecture while continuing to practice painting. Shulman will give a gallery talk at 7 p.m.

Whipple Hall will highlight the work of Proctor Academy students.

Tatewell Gallery will feature the photography of Debbie Coyle and the artwork of Yvonne Shukovsky.

New London Hospital’s lobby will feature the work of New England artists William C. Turner, Amy Hook-Therrien, Kearsarge Regional High School Students artists and Kate St. Cyr.

Gallery strolls highlight talented local artists, as well as provide a chance for people to get out and enjoy art for free. The Center for the Arts holds them four times a year as a First Friday event.
