About Rye Art Study

The Rye Art Study Group was founded by like-minded Seacoast residents.  In 1963 they began a quest to learn and study art and artists, Dody Kolb, founding member of Rye Art Study Group, served on the board of directors of the University of New Hampshire Art Gallery in Durham and the Currier Gallery in Manchester. Dody, was founder of Wentworth-Coolidge Gallery and curated for eight years.  Mrs. Kolb was an active Rye Art Study member and a patron of the arts, until her passing in January of 2013. The new Kolb Gallery was named in honor of Dody during the Lilac festival May 25, 2019.  Dody was, and is, beloved by artists and all who knew her.  She is still fondly mentioned in conversations at meetings and will always be one of the Seacoasts major patrons of the arts.
