Arts Council of Tamworth's Summer Art Show & Sale, July 24-26, in Chocorua

Arts Council of Tamworth is once again hosting its annual summer Art Show & Sale, a longstanding tradition in the area, from July 24 to July 26 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 30 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. Admission is free.

The public is invited to the Artists’ Reception & Opening on Friday evening, July 24, 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. Refreshments will be served and pianist Becky VerPlanck will provide music.

The show continues on Saturday, July 25 and Sunday, July 26, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM both days, and on Saturday your visit to look at art can be combined with all the other activities taking place in Chocorua, and nourished by delicious food available for sale. ACT is grateful for the support of Season Sponsor Silver Lake Home Center in Silver Lake and Major Sponsors P. C. Hoag and Company in Tamworth and The Mad Planter Garden Center in Chocorua.

Arts Council of Tamworth’s 43rd season begins on Saturday, September 26 with a performance by the dazzling Rani Arbo and daisy mayhem at The Barnstormers Theatre in Tamworth, NH. Season tickets for the 2009-2010 Performance Series will be available for purchase at the art show. Season tickets, $120 for seven shows, offer a substantial discount over individual ticket prices, and guarantee you a seat at every show. Season tickets can also be purchased here or by calling 603-323-8104.
