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:

Master potter Gerry Williams (1926-2014), New Hampshire's first Artist Laureate and creator of Studio Potter magazine and the Phoenix Workshops with his wife Julie, was a juried member of the League of NH Craftsmen and one of the founders of the New Hampshire Potters Guild. He inspired many ceramic artists in New Hampshire and beyond by his work and life. In his humble, inclusive way, Williams saw himself as a collaborator with all who loved working in clay and was quoted as saying: “We are friends and fellow travelers, not competitors or challengers. We are moving toward a common goal.” The New Hampshire Potters Guild’s Biennial Exhibition, called Friends and Fellow Travelers, features pottery and sculptural ceramic pieces inspired by Williams’ work and thought.
Also on display will also be a “Show within the Show” featuring some of Williams’ pottery.
