Artistic Roots Adds New Artists

PLYMOUTH — All are invited to join the member artists at Artistic Roots Co-Operative Gallery in downtown Plymouth as they introduce their newest members as well as welcoming several visiting artists during a reception to be held on Friday, October 25, from 6-8 p.m. at Artistic Roots located at 73 Main Street in downtown Plymouth.

Artistic Roots will introduce four new member artists who have joined he Co-operative Art Gallery over the past few months.

Cari Ordway is a jeweler who specializes in bead woven pieces. "I have been beading for 10 years, but I have also recently began working in precious metal clay and silversmithing.'' says Ordway.

The gallery also celebrates Carole Halsey Keller, an extremely accomplished oil painter.
Donna Waeger of Groton also joined the gallery this summer as a fiber artist. Donna knits lovely sweaters and scarves and is co-leading a Sunday afternoon knitting group at Artistic Roots.

The most recent addition to the talented group is Ken Hamilton, recently of Plymouth. Hamilton launched his photographic career in a darkroom working for a large print company in Flagstaff, AZ. It was there that he developed his creative appetite for a diverse subject matter.

"We are also pleased to have several visiting artists who have joined us beginning this month and displaying their work for sale through January," says Lynn Haust, current President of Artistic Roots.

Visiting artists to be featured include Andrew Thompson, gifted wildlife photographer from Wonalancet. Andrew owns Wild Light Images and
visitors to Artistic Roots are sure to be impressed with his vivid images of many of New England's beloved animal residents.
Another guest artist is potter Sue Henke. Her handmade cups, bowls and saucers have already caused much excitement among shoppers, with the vivid glaze colors being a common comment.

Nancy Conklin also joins the group and adds dimension and beauty with her fabulous quilting. She offers a diverse grouping of precision work ranging from small wall art and table runners to full size quilts. Shoppers are sure to be enthralled with the charming hand-woven baskets and whimsical gourds of Jane Darling of Canaan.
According to Debbie Johnson, Coordinator of the Visiting Artist Program,"Jane does something new that we have never been able to offer at Artistic Roots and we are so excited about her work!" Rounding out the Visiting Artist's display is oil painter Mary Walker, of New Hampton. Walker is a modern impressionist and award-winning painter who enjoys the challenge of capturing a moment in time while exploring the colors and textures within her view. Much of her inspiration comes from discovering intimate scenes while walking the back roads and beaches of New England.

Learn About Salmon Life Cycle at 'Salmon Sunday', November 10

TUFTONBORO — Bring the kids and explore the life cycle of landlocked salmon, fish prized by anglers on New Hampshire's big lakes, at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's annual "Salmon Sunday" event on Sunday, November 10, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Pope Dam in Melvin Village. Pope Dam is nine miles north of Wolfeboro on Route 109 in the town of Tuftonboro.

"Salmon Sunday is a great chance for everyone to get a close-up look at landlocked salmon from Lake Winnipesaukee in their fall spawning colors," said Don Miller, fisheries biologist for the Lakes Region. "Kids love to see the big salmon, averaging about three pounds each, and watch biologists collect the eggs."

During the event, fisheries biologists will be busy harvesting, or "stripping," eggs and milt from adult salmon. Standing knee-deep in the cold water of the Melvin River, scientists expertly relieve the colorful adult female salmon of their eggs by stroking their stomachs. Milt from the male fish is obtained in the same way, and mixed with the gold-colored eggs to fertilize them.

This activity is all part of the work N.H. Fish and Game carries out each year, with support from the Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration Program, to maintain the landlocked salmon population in New Hampshire's big lakes.

Salmon used for the stripping demonstration are netted from Lake Winnipesaukee during October and early November. They are returned to the lake after their eggs and milt have been collected. The fertilized eggs are taken to Powder Mill Hatchery in New Durham, where they will hatch in three to four months. The salmon are raised in the hatchery for about 18 months, then stocked into Lake Winnipesaukee and other New Hampshire lakes.

Fish and Game staff will be on hand to answer questions about salmon, the egg-stripping process and the stocking program that ensures these beautiful fish continue to be available in the lakes for anglers to catch.

Salmon Sunday is a "rain or shine" event. Dress warmly. If you have questions about Salmon Sunday, call 603-744-5470.
