Published DateCONCORD — The League of NH Craftsmen is hosting a fine craft exhibition, Fantasy: Imagine, that gives viewers an opportunity to see the world in a different way
. This exhibition of fine craft reflects the inspiration and creativity of 26 juried League members and features flying elephants, whistles, mermaids, gnome homes, butterflies, and dragons, among other imaginative themes.
It begins on June 28 and runs until September 18 at The Gallery at The Craft Center and headquarters in the SMILE! building on 49 South Main Street in Concord. All the fine craft items on display (such as Flying Elephants by Art Anderson) are available for purchase, so visitors can appreciate and purchase the work made by juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen.
An opening reception, where the public can meet and speak with the participating exhibitors, is scheduled for Friday, June 28 from 5-7 p.m. The Gallery is located at 49 South Main Street, Suite 100, and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays, during the exhibition, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"People appreciate art and fine craft because it allows them to escape into a new world or see things from a different perspective," said Susie Lowe-Stockwell, executive director of the League of NH Craftsmen. "Our juried members are skilled at translating their creative and fantastical ideas into fine craft pieces that people can relate to."
