The Gallery at The Craft Center and League of NH Craftsmen Headquarters Hosts Fine Craft Exhibition: 
Circles, Squares & Triangles: The Shape of Things to Come
July 7 – September 26, 2014
 
Opening Reception: Friday, July 11, 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
 
                  
CONCORD, NH – A fine craft exhibition presented by the League of NH Craftsmen offers a new perspective on the simple geometric shapes that we see in everyday life.  Circles, Squares & Triangles:  The Shape of Things to Come is a multi-media exhibition of the work of 63 master craftsmen – all juried members of the League – that explores the simple and complex shapes formed along the boundaries of imagination. The exhibition features handcrafted jewelry, wood, fiber, clay, photography, metal, glass, calligraphy, prints, and mixed media that depict various lines, shapes, and colors. Some of the fine craft on display include: a handmade quilt that illustrates New England’s springtime light through the placement of squares, rectangles and small circles; a detailed model of a stucco house looks like it is blowing in the wind, taking on a whimsical new shape; a fabric necklace with round beads that represent buttons. Most of the items in the exhibition are available for purchase.
 
The exhibition starts July 7 and runs until September 26 at The Gallery at The Craft Center and headquarters in the SMILE! building on 49 South Main Street in Concord. All the fine craft items on display are available for purchase, so visitors can appreciate and purchase the work made by juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen (a list appears at the end of this release). The public will be able to meet and speak with the participating exhibitors during the opening reception on Friday, July 7 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The Gallery is located at 49 South Main Street, Suite 100, in Concord, NH and is open Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, with extended hours on Thursdays until 7:00 pm, and Saturday, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
 
“Circles, squares, and triangles are presented in new and different ways based on the inspiration and vision of our juried members. It is a fun and fresh and colorful exhibition that people will really enjoy,” said League Executive Director Susie Lowe-Stockwell.
 
Always on Display: The Grodin Permanent Collection Museum
The League also displays a new selection of fine craft from its more than 300-lot permanent collection at the Grodin Permanent Collection Museum at the League headquarters. This collection includes craft from the League's early years to the present, including pieces made by some of the world's renowned craftspeople, such as Otto and Vivika Heino and Edwin and Mary Scheier. The museum provides fascinating insights into the evolution of fine craft and should not be missed. Admission to the museum is free.
