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:

January 15 to March 18, 2016
Opening Reception Friday, January 15, 5pm – 7pm

Enameling is artistic alchemy, transforming glass and metal into beautiful objects. It is a technique that involves fusing glass onto metal under high heat. The League of NH Craftsmen, in partnership with The Enamelist Society, is pleased to display work from the 15th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition and 11th International Juried Student Enamel Exhibition. The entries in the International Juried Exhibition feature the best contemporary enamels produced in the last two years and the Student Exhibition features the work of students in accredited degree programs around the world. The artists are from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Hungary, Taiwan, Venezuela, and throughout the United States, including one enamel artist from New Hampshire.
Technology in a Hand-Made World
Our current Show-Within-A-Show exhibition explores and shares what some of our juried members are doing with their knowledge of more advanced technology tools and opportunities. Visit the gallery and learn about the craft of each of the seven participants and how they are choosing methods and programs.
The exhibition will be on display until March 18th.
The participants are:
James Cook, Kathleen Dustin, Greg Gorman, Adam Nudd-Homeyer, Joy Raskin, Wen Redmond and Sam Wild.
