Arts Council of Tamworth’s primary summer activity is its Annual Art Show & Sale at Runnells Hall in Chocorua the last full weekend of July (July 27-29), and Art in the Park, an outdoor sale of smaller works of art such as note cards and matted prints on Chocorua Day, Saturday, July 28.
ACT invites local and visiting artists, both professional and amateur, to share their work with the community. The art show is a great opportunity for collectors wanting to discover new artists and for those looking to purchase art for their own homes. It allows emerging artists a chance to go public, and for professional artists can be an opportunity to share work that is different in some way from the work they show in galleries: experiments in a new medium, for example. The Art Show is a delight every year, with so much diversity of style and media—wonderful to see what our friends and neighbors have been doing all winter. Each artist can submit up to three pieces in any media, at least one of which must be offered for sale.
