Exhibit Entry Deadline:  Saturday, June 6, 2015

Exhibit Dates:  June 27- Aug. 6, 2015

Exhibit Location:  Library Arts Center, 58 North Main Street, Newport NH

In celebration of the new hardwood floor in its galleries, the Arts Center will host a juried wood show this summer.  This exhibit will include furniture, turning, sculpture, carving etc. and will feature both professional woodworkers, along with those who are not professionals but are passionate about their craft, in order to fully explore the scope of woodworking in the greater community in a welcoming and inclusive way.  If you made it out of wood, we want to see it!

Exhibit Jurors are members of the New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association Ted Blachly and Terry Moore

Professionals and amateurs alike are encouraged to enter this exhibit which will showcase the rich and diverse ways wood is used as an art medium.  Juror Ted Blachly states: “As a woodworker for 40 years I’m always interested in how this wonderful material  can be used and shaped into a wide variety of things in both a utilitarian or purely expressive way… It’s good stuff! and a lot can be done with it.  I look forward to reviewing the work for the exhibit and meeting the makers.”

Participants may enter up to two pieces each.  Photographs of the pieces should be submitted with accompanying form either on a disk or printed out.  Submissions may be mailed or delivered to the Library Arts Center  by (updated deadline) June 6, 2015. 

Participants will be informed of decision of the jury by June 10th.

Drop-off for accepted pieces will be arranged for the week of June 15-19th.

OVER THE VALLEY & ABOVE THE MOUNTAIN:  A community exhibit of flight and the skies, in partnership with Newport’s Parlin Field Airport

Exhibit Dates:  Aug. 15-Sept. 17

This exhibit is designed to show the beauty in our regional landscape from a different perspective—either looking down on the land from above, looking up to the skies, looking at the airport and airplanes themselves, or the concept of flight.  The Library Arts Center is looking for professional artists and community members alike to participate.  Contact Director Kate Niboli Luppold at info [at] libraryartscenter [dot] org or 603-863-3040 to learn more about participation and to share your ideas.
