Our next Artist Demonstration on the Porch will be Saturday, September 16, 2023 from 10:00 to 1:00. League of New Hampshire Craftsman Larry and Victoria Elbroch will demonstrate their process of combining Larry's photography of trees with Victorie's printmaking. Together they create beautiful, amazing prints in addition to their own individual work. Hope you can stop by and meet the artist!
Sandwich Home Industries, which will be celebrating its 100th birthday in just two years, is offering something new this fall, a Lakes Region Guest Artist space in the Gallery.
The brainchild of Sandwich resident Mary Coolidge, the Home Industries was founded to help local craftspeople on the eve of the Great Depression earn an income from their work. The building supplied a space where local craftspeople could display and sell the fine crafts they made at home and where they could teach others, so traditional NH crafts would be passed down through the years. When the League of NH Craftsmen was formed a few years later (with Mary Coolidge as its first president) those goals expanded to craftspeople throughout NH.
Four years ago the SHI Board of Directors re-dedicated itself to the original mission of supporting local artists and the local economy, at first by expanding opportunities for all local artists to display and sell their work and to teach classes. We’ve expanded the number of artists at Artisans on the Green, and sought new classes and porch demonstrations by local craftspeople. We are thrilled now to be able to offer a space in our Gallery to these folks.
On Thursday, August 31, the Gallery welcomed visitors to a reception for local artists. It was received with great enthusiasm from both artists and visitors alike. Local Guest Artists' work will be available in the Gallery through October 9th, after which the Gallery is closed for the winter. We have SO MANY talented artists in our local area! Do stop by!
The Board of Directors for The Sandwich Fine Craft Gallery
The Sandwich Fine Craft Gallery at 32 Main Street in Sandwich, is open 7 days a week until October 15, 2023. Hours are from 10:00-5:00 Monday thru Saturday and 12:00-5:00 on Sundays. We hope you will stop in and check out the amazing work of artists from all over the state of New Hampshire!
