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 winter chill is in the air, and the League of NH Craftsmen is warming
things up with its fine craft exhibition, Hot Stuff: Feel the Heat.
This multi-media exhibition features a creative display of fine craft made by
37 master craftspeople, all juried members of the League. Some of the pieces
include a wood-fired double devil jug with crown of fire; warm wearables, such
as knitted hats and silk and merino wool scarves in warm colors; a frying pan
embellished with beaded words, phrases, and flames; an intricate quilt; candle
holders; and much more.
The public will be able to meet and speak with the participating exhibitors
during the opening reception on Friday, January 10 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
There will also be a wine tasting event, hosted by LaBelle Winery (Amherst).
LaBelle produces 26 drinking wines at its Amherst (NH) winery.
“Warmth is on everyone’s mind at this time of year, so we invite people to
come in from the cold to see how our juried members have interpreted the ‘hot
stuff’ theme to create functional and decorative fine craft,” said Susie
Lowe-Stockwell, executive director of the League of NH Craftsmen.
