NH non-profit arts collective Wrong Brain has announced it will host a grand opening for its new headquarters, located at 66 Third St. #B1, Dover, NH on March 16 from 5-10pm. Admission to the event is free for all ages, with hors d’oeuvres provided by Chapel and Main. Wrong Brain is asking for a $10- $20 suggested donation after 8:30 pm for the dance party with DJ Octo Octa. Events begin with a 5pm gallery opening of resident Wrong Brain artists Cara Cabral, Marisa Companion, Mea Santulli, Maggie Green, Brooke Bouldry-Morrison, and Ari Manakos, followed by a Sam Pao fashion show at 8pm and concludes with a dance party featuring internationally popular house DJ Octo Octa.
The new Wrong Brain headquarters features dozens of recent murals by local painters, seven artist’s studios, a gallery, a venue for hosting art and music events, and will house the new Sam Pao Shop and Studio clothing boutique—run by Wrong Brain founder Sam Paolini. Speaking on behalf of the board of directors, Paolini says, “After leaving our space in the Washington Mills, we wanted Wrong Brain to stay central to the Dover art scene, so moving to this location was convenient for both our organization and our artists.” Asked about their new shop, they said “It’s going to be my work space and also feature a retail section for my clothing line. The fashion show will feature my Spring 2019 collection.” Sam Pao creations will also be showcased later in March as they participate as a contestant in the Project Upcycle challenge at 3S Artspace on March 30.
