A call went out to the residents of Manchester to lift each other up by sharing moments of joy and hope by submitting their pictures to a shared webpage called #HappyThings hosted by Better Manchester Magazine. That call was answered and the Galleries@WORK_SPACE are thrilled to display those images in our Main Gallery so they can be viewed by passerby’s and will available to view in person once we can once again welcome the public into our space. Thank you for the smiles!

The Loop Gallery

The Loop Gallery lies within the hallway that connects four unique meeting venues on the first floor of WORK_SPACE. 

Wistful World by Geoffrey Houghton

Wistful World is a representation of Geoffrey Houghton’s latest works related to colorful and outlandish characters… a unique path of time, fashion & technology. A self-taught artist, Geoff enjoys creating watercolor paintings in a vivid and bold way that has been referred to as a sub-genre of Steampunk with his earlier works. You’ll discover his art focuses primarily on eccentric and enchanting damsels that portray a different time, technology and fashion. His current work expresses his desire to display more “edgy” and melancholy emotions with his characters. He has won numerous painting awards, including 1st place for his painting “Lizzie returns to Centre County” at the competitive Monson Arts Council show in Monson, MA. He also was published on the covers of a phonebook & two literature magazines.
