Solo Exhibition | Where The Bots Begin

Where The Bots Begin
Robots in Rowboats, Art by Lauren Briére

Exhibition Dates: Monday, September 28th - Saturday, January 23rd, 2021.


The first step to an original Robots in Rowboats oil painting; graphite (or pen) caresses a piece of paper and Lauren Briére begins her creative journey.  Art for the People Gallery is ecstatic that our  new solo exhibition, “Where The Bots Begin”, showcases 200+ sketches that are the beginnings to creating the whimsical & endearing art of Robots in Rowboats. Lauren Briére’s art escorts the viewer on a visual journey into outer space, the fun of sports, walks in nature, adventures in Rowboats and some fantastical & nostalgic life events! Do you have a favorite Bot? Shop Art for the People Gallery’s new online store or come into the gallery!

Upcoming Exhibition

Celebration of.....

Previous Exhibitions


Exhibition Dates: 05/29/2020 - 09/19/2020

Description: The ART ART ART II Wall is a dedicated space for original art created by local artists & is curated without a theme. The flexibility of having the ART ART ART II wall is a bonus to our artists at Art for the People. The idea for the ART ART ART II wall was born from the awareness that not all original art might “fit” a current themed exhibition. Why wait for a future “themed” exhibition when we can curate a piece of art onto the ART ART ART II wall right away!!!!
