Summer Art Show & Sale
ART SHOW & SALE
Arts Council of Tamworth will not hold its annual Art Show this year, 2013. Check back for news of future plans next year, and in the meantime, visit our many fine local galleries to see the work of our many fine local artists.
Arts Council of Tamworth is once again hosting its annual summer Art Show & Sale, a longstanding tradition in the area, from July 26 to July 28 at Runnells Hall in Chocorua, NH. The art show, held the last weekend of July to coincide with Chocorua Community Day and the Chocorua Library’s Book & Bake Sale on Saturday, will contain the work of over 40 artists who live in or are connected to the area—including many favorites from shows past and some who have never shown their work in Chocorua before. Artists are eligible to show work in any media, from paintings and photography to ceramics and woodworking, so the show is always diverse and exciting. Many of the pieces are available for purchase, a wonderful opportunity both for collectors and for those simply looking to purchase art for their own homes. 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. Admission is free. Art in the Park is an outdoor sale on Chocorua Day, Saturday, July 27, of smaller artwork such as note cards and matted prints by Art Show exhibiting artists. Artists can find more details on the registration form, above. The public is invited to the Artists’ Reception & Opening on Friday evening, July 26, from 7:00 to 9:00. Come meet the artists, get an early chance to purchase a work you love, and mingle with friends and neighbors. Enjoy refreshments and music, too. The show continues on Saturday, July 27 and Sunday, July 28, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM both days, and on Saturday your visit to look at art can be combined with smaller art purchases at Art in the Park, and with all the other activities taking place in Chocorua, and nourished by the delicious food available for sale.
