LACONIA — Homeowners and businesses along both Durkee Brook and nearby Meadow Brook in Laconia have been struggling for years to find a way to keep the stream banks from eroding. On September 18th from 6:30 to 8 PM in room 200A of Laconia City Hall there will be a free public information session to discuss what's being done to address selected occurrences of erosion, and what measures landowners can take to successfully help reduce erosion on their property.
The session will feature a presentation by Randall Shuey, an erosion control specialist reporting on what level of study is currently planned; Eric Williams from the NH Department of Environmental Services to introduce their Soak Up The Rain - NH program for homeowners; Lisa Morin of the Belknap County Conservation District (BCCD) to review a landowner survey currently being distributed to those living in the Durkee Brook watershed; and time for session attendees to share their knowledge of Durkee Brook and Meadow Brook.

MEREDITH — Print maker Matt Brown will deliver a lecture on September 22 from 7-8 p.m. at the Fireside Room in Chase House. Brown has been a member of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen for a number of years and his prints stand out from the rest. During this lecture he will discuss his methods and what has driven him to create such unique prints and after the lecture there will be some time to talk to Matt one-on-one.
Brown makes his color woodblock prints using the traditional Japanese hanga method. This is printing with brushes and a hand-held baren from multiple hand-carved wood blocks using rice paste, pigments and water. It was the technique used to make the ukiyo-e prints of Hokusai, Hiroshige, and others during the 19th century. Matt says he "loves the process of making these prints: the way pictorial simplicity is encouraged, the way an image is separated into parts and put back together, the way the translucent colors blend and juxtapose, the way the wood interacts with the paper."
His imagery explores the development of pictorial space using this inherently flat medium of the carved and printed wood block. By using techniques which build on intimate aspects of the Japanese approach affecting texture and tone (variations in printing pressure, fades in the brushing of the pigments) he tries to achieve happy resolutions of the tension between flat printed shapes and the illusion of a depicted landscape.
Register for this free lecture by calling the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery at 603.279.7920 or visiting us at 279 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith.
