Artist Appreciation Event Says Thank You to the Lakes Region Art Community

LACONIA — The third floor, Rose Chertok Gallery, at the Belknap Mill located in Downtown Laconia will be transformed into the first Artist Appreciation Day sponsored by U Frame We Frame, Lively Design Framing, and Frates Creative Art Supply Shoppe on Saturday, June 14 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

"This will be a "clean sweep" on frames, ready cut mats, framing hardware, art bags backings, and glass," according to Kevin Rines owner of U Frame We Frame, who organized this event. He brought together long time Canal Street business owners, Lively and Frates to be part of this unique artist centered event.

Sherry Lively will be offering her selections of frames and framing supplies at prices that are sure to make any artist happy. Sherry added, "I'm excited about providing quality materials and frames to Lakes Region artists for their support over the years."

To compliment the day- long event Frates Creative Art Supply Shoppe will provide quality art supplies, papers, brushes, drawing pads, canvas panels, gouache, acrylic sets, watercolors, and more at 40% -80% discounts.

"This event is a perfect example of what can be achieved when local  art centered businesses collaborate and bring their positive ideas together for the art community. We all hope that artists from around the Lakes Region will stop by the Belknap Mill and take advantage of these extreme pricing advantages," added Frates.

Refreshments will be provided and special door prizes will be awarded throughout the day- long event. For more information interested individuals can visit or stop by the Canal Street sponsors.
