Paintings, pottery, sculptures, maps, mono prints and photographs by some of the region’s best artists will be on display, according to a press release from leaders of the Grand Dover Chamber of Commerce.
Representatives from local arts organizations Wrong Brain and The Dover Art Center will be in attendance.
Wrong Brain is located on Third Street in Dover and provides a venue and outlet for unconventional, under-represented and emerging artists of all mediums in the Seacoast area through publications, multimedia events, open markets, exhibitions , discussions, workshops and community projects.
The Art Center is a creative community with over 6,000 square feet of space in the Washington Street Mills in Dover. The center has 10 artist studios and a gallery space.

The Cochecho Arts Festival, funded by Orpheum Apartments and hosted by the Chamber, offers concerts, children’s shows and a family movie night.
According to the website, the festival began in the summer of 1987, after the House accepted a challenge to match an anonymous donation to produce a summer concert series.
Family movie night will be the last event of the summer on Saturday August 14.
A full schedule can be viewed here and all events are free and open to the public.
