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.
Bowl Me Over
July 8 to September 2, 2016
Opening Reception Friday, July 8, 5pm – 7pm
On display at The Craft Center, 49 South Main Street, Suite 100, Concord, New Hampshire
Bowl Me Over showcases a variety of creative, inspiring, and innovative craft – pieces that will overwhelm or astonish you! All work is handcrafted by juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen – artisans who have met the League’s stringent standards for skill and creativity. You will see finely detailed sailboats on textured water created with clay and wood; intricate birch trees made with fused glass; a segmented wooden urn made with close to 300 pieces of different types of wood; and a “quilt tent” necklace formed with woven beads, crochet and silk; among many other craft in a variety of media.
“Fine craft and art elicit an emotional response from the viewer. In this exhibition, our juried members are presenting their ideas and techniques with the purpose of surprising and delighting the public,” said Jane Oneail, executive director of the League of NH Craftsmen. “This is one exhibit that you won’t want to miss!”
An opening reception, where the public can meet and speak with the participating exhibitors, is scheduled for Friday, July 8 from 5 pm to 7 pm.
