Events - The Gallery
The Gallery, which is adjacent to the lobby in our headquarters, is the venue for four innovative, imaginative craft exhibitions each year.
Our Gallery committee develops a theme for each exhibition and our juried members "think out of the box" to create work in all media that embodies this theme. It's a treat trying to guess how they'll interpret each challenge.
Each exhibition has an opening night reception. All exhibitions are free and open to the public. The work is also for sale.
Exhibition Hours: Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and Saturdays during exhibitions, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The Gallery is open prior to most events held at the Capitol Center for the Arts.
Here is our current exhibition:

The skill and creativity involved in creating fine handmade craft is kicked up to another level when two or more master craftspeople come together to make art. Each piece in the Yours, Mine, and Ours exhibition is a hybrid of different craft media: a necklace created with polymer clay and soutache and bead embroidery; a lamp with a translucent wood shade and a colorful ceramic base; and a privacy screen with a detailed wood frame and delicately painted fabric panels. The exhibit also features fine craft made by solely by the collaborating craftspeople.
Also on display: Insightful!
The League is partnering with the NH Association for the Blind for a unique show-within-the
show called Insightful! This exhibit features high tactile and high contrast craft. Sighted and
visually impaired visitors are encouraged to experience the work through touch.
