Opening Reception: A New Path: Prison Furniture Making Program Exhibit

The New Hampshire Furniture Masters are honored to present “A New Path: Prison Furniture Making Program,” an exhibition of works by inmates participating in the Furniture Masters’ Prison Outreach Program, which currently operates in correctional facilities in New Hampshire and Maine. The show will be on view at the Furniture Masters’ Gallery, located at 49 South Main Street in Concord, NH, from March 11 through June 8, 2015. An opening reception will be held on March 27 from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Admission is free. The Prison Outreach Program was founded in 1999, following an invitation from Former New Hampshire Superior Court Justice Kathleen A. McGuire to Furniture Master Terry Moore to visit the Concord correctional facility’s Hobby Craft Workshop. The program began with the instruction of Eric Grant and Tim Eldridge, two inmates who showed great promise. Today approximately 12 to 15 inmates are participating in the program at any given time, with more on a waiting list. Only those participants who have maintained an exemplary disciplinary record for one year are admitted. Participating inmates are schooled in the art of fine furniture making by a rotating faculty of Furniture Master volunteers including Terry Moore, Tom McLaughlin and many others.

Lush Life at the Lamont Gallery

The Lamont Gallery at Phillips Exeter Academy Presents Lush Life March 23-May 2, 2015 Opening Reception: Friday, March 27, 5-7pm Gallery Talk: Saturday, March 28, 10am Artists in Lush Life consider nature as subject and as poetic springboard. Gloria Calderon-Saenz’s textured paintings imagine rivers as sites of abundant nourishment and ecological collapse. Artist-scientist Natalie Andrew’s “research forests in miniature” are living tableaux of mosses, ferns and slime molds—nestled in beads and glitter—that question divisions between the natural and the artificial. The photographic portraits of Bear Kirkpatrick ’84 compel us to notice the richness of the world that we sometimes fail to see. Sean Beavers uses still life and landscape painting to look more attentively at the natural world and to meditate on beauty, life and death. A site-specific installation by Jung Mi Lee, Jon Sakata and John Ellis invokes the complexity and chaos of climate systems. Fiber artist Laura Morrison imagines “wild, open spaces,” and contemplates a fantastic natural world of the future, that will exist with or without us. Also on view: Interconnected: Community & Conservation Photographs by current student David Shepley ’16 April 6-May 2, 2015

As the Smoke Clears, a memoir about addiction, with author Erika Hebert-Cormier

Join us for a memoir and author discussion on a topic that is often discussed in hushed tones, but begs for gentleness and openness. Erika Hebert-Cormier shares her story of addiction and conquering her demons. Erika Cormier, at 29, was a happy wife and stay at home mother living 20 miles north of Boston and maintaining a happy suburban family life that she longed for but while also privately struggling with alcoholism for many years. After having already succeeded with a period of addiction and brief struggle with anxiety as a teenager, Erika justified her continued drinking by acknowledging the battles she had already won, having experienced her share of being a troubled youth, but nothing could have prepared her enough for the turmoil & destruction that would plague her and her family over a decade later.

Based on Christina Rossetti’s most famous poem, the play is rich with evocative images, haunting music, vivid language, and a fantastic journey that follows the plight of two sisters inexplicably drawn to a dark glen where they encounter a band of mysterious "goblin merchant men” who offer them what they most desire and what they most fear. Director Danielle Howard, in her first production at NHTP, describes Goblin Market as “part fairytale, part memory, and a feast for all the senses.” Reservations are recommended.

Sap Gathering Contest

This year the Farm will host its 16th annual horse drawn sap gathering contest. Families across the region come to enjoy this unique and traditional New England event. Teams consist of two draft horses hitched to a sap sled, a teamster, and two “sap runners”. They race to collect all of the sap buckets on the course while being judged on the teamster’s command of the horses. All of the sap buckets and lids must be properly placed back on the trees and the team must cross the finish line on the sled. When the team completes the course the amount of sap in the sled’s tank is measured and their score is tallied based on their finishing time, amount collected, and deductions taken for any uncollected buckets, or horse/teamster judged infractions. The event highlights not only the state’s important maple syrup industry, but also celebrates New Hampshire’s rich farm heritage. Farm staff will be hard at work in our sugar house demonstrating how sap becomes syrup, and handing out free samples, an added feature to a fun family day. Hot food and beverages are available for purchase and the Farm’s barns and store are open to all visitors. Teams are typically racing on the course 10:30am to 2:30pm with a short break for lunch.

Adam Ezra Group

The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is constantly proving that they are more than just a band, musically, personally, and socially. Ezra has spent time farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa...and he crams it all into the music. Ezra always challenges our perspective, often teetering between sensitive poet and ballsy rocker, as anyone at our SOLD OUT Anniversary Bash this summer can tell you- they witnessed Adam and his smokin' band raise the roof! AEG currently dedicates around 25% of their touring to benefit events in communities across the country, and almost all of their tour dates incorporate some form of "giving back." Ezra has created his own non-profit organization called RallySound, which officially received 501c3 status in the fall of 2011. It's mission: to help create socially conscious, live music events that inspire communities, grassroots activism, and civic engagement. Having toured with Rusted Root, The Avett Brothers, Jason Mraz, The Goo Goo Dolls, Blues Traveler, Los Lobos, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Dwight Yoakam, and many more, the Adam Ezra Group has graduated from the local Boston scene to the national stage with a momentum that is catapulting them towards being one of the country's most talked about bands

Felted Wool Hats Demo with Carrie Cahill-Mulligan

The League of NH Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is pleased to host a “Spirit of the Maker” demonstration with Carrie Cahill-Mulligan on Sunday, October 26th, 1:00 PM –5:00 PM. The public is invited to meet and speak with Carrie and see how she creates her beautiful felted hats. Handcrafted with 50 percent llama fiber (which is 8 times warmer than sheep’s wool), these hats are not only luxurious, they are also extremely hard-wearing. Each of her hats begins its life as a very large (roughly 12″ x 19″) hand knit stocking cap, which takes 7 hours to knit. The Meredith Fine Craft Gallery is located at 279 Daniel Webster Highway, next to the Inn at Church Landing, in Meredith, NH. Any questions please call the Gallery at 603.279.7920.

Irish Balladeer Sings at Derry Public Library

Derry Public Library is happy to welcome the return of popular local Irish Balladeer, Paul Carroll at the Library Monday evening, March 30, at 6:30 pm. Paul grew up in Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties when the pubs were packed with folk singers and ballad groups. It is there that he found a love for the music and songs that were to be part of his life. He credits his mother for giving him the gift of song. She was a fine singer in her own right and he remembers fondly the “hooleys” in the house. Paul emigrated to Australia in the early 70’s but he never strayed very far from the music, singing in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. During his time in Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing the stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Furey’s and Boys of the Lough. Paul has made his home in New Hampshire, for nearly 25 years. His latest CD is called “The Road You Take”. Don’t miss this great entertainment program at Derry Public Library, Monday, March 30, at 6:30 pm. Come prepared to tap your toes and enjoy the music presented by this talented local musician! For a sampling, you can visit his web site at www.pjcarroll.com. Call the Library at 432-6140 for more information.
