Tamworth Artisans Showroom Grand Opening!

The Tamworth Artisans are excited to announce the Grand Opening of their showroom at Chocorua Village Pottery Thanksgiving weekend, November 26-28 (Friday and Saturday 10-7, Sunday 10-4). The artisans' work includes diverse media—paintings, pottery, wreaths, textiles, carved stone, photography, blown glass, and jewelry. Refreshments will be served. All are invited.

The Tamworth Artisans are a group of talented, local artists who, through the hospitality of the Tamworth Farmers' Market, joined forces this summer to show and sell one another’s work. After a successful start with their outdoor gallery at the Tamworth Farmers' Market, the Tamworth Artisans decided to have a venue to showcase their work year-round. Myles Grinstead of Chocorua Village Pottery generously offered the group the main floor of her pottery shop (formerly an old dairy barn) for their gallery. During November, Ms. Grinstead, the artists, and members of the community renovated the space and created a wonderful indoor showroom for their work.

In addition to the Tamworth Farmers' Market, two other community organizations—Arts Council of Tamworth (ACT) and Remick Country Museum and Farm—have stepped forward to help promote the Tamworth Artisans and other local artists. The Remick Museum, in Tamworth, NH, now has a collection of the Tamworth Artisans’ work available for purchase in their Museum Gift Store (Mon-Fri from 10-4 and during special events; see pictures at www.remickmuseum.org).

Please join the Tamworth Artisans this weekend for the Grand Opening of their Showroom at Chocorua Village Pottery and celebrate the rich diversity of local talent. Stop in at the Remick Gift Store and the Chocorua showroom to find beautiful, unique gifts and items for your home. Following the Grand Opening, the Tamworth Artisans’ showroom at Chocorua Village Pottery will be open daily through December from 10 to 5 every day except Wednesdays, and on weekends in the new year. Chocorua Village Pottery is located at 18 Deer Hill Road—across from Chocorua Library and just east of the intersection of Rtes. 16 and 113 in Chocorua Village.
