Majestic’s West Side Story stars an ensemble cast under the Direction of Rebecca Antonakos, assisted by A. Robert Dionne, Musical Direction by Judy Hayward, and Choreography by Jen Sassak.

A Pattern Language Sean Riley, Tracy Spadafora and Steven Zoldak July 7-August 7, 2015 Reception: Thursday, July 16, 5-6:30 pm Artists in A Pattern Language explore the transformative potential of material through line, pattern, and rhythm. Their work, and their process, invite us to “make a world” through imagining places near and far, constructing objects, ideas, and systems, and sharing those discoveries with others. Sean Riley works with fibers, textiles, drawing and collage. In his memorial project, he uses pieces of material from his father’s clothing to investigate memory, history, and the way clothing can shield and protect. Encaustic artist Tracy Spadafora, intrigued by the patterns in DNA code, juxtaposes nature’s elegant designs with the human-made landscape. Steven Zoldak’s functional pottery, following the rich history of the slip trail tradition, bridges historic patterns with the artist’s own calligraphy-inspired aesthetic.

Art & Science of Printmaking with R.P Hale

7:00 PM - Meredith

The League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be having a free lecture by printmaker R.P Hale on August 3rd from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This lecture will be hosted by the Meredith Bay Colony Club. R.P. Hale is a multigenerational interdisciplinary artist, master-calligrapher and illustrator, medical illustrator, wood engraver, printmaker, early musician and harpsichord maker whose work is in collections and museums worldwide. His style is illustrative and he deliberately cultivated a late-18th-century engraving style for his work, all of which is by commission. His illustrated talk on the process of wood engraving covers materials, production, printing, some of the applied physics and math of the printing process and some of his own Mexican family's long history in art, printing and wood engraving. He inherited nearly all of his tools, shop equipment, type fonts, and two of his three presses. He will have examples of the many tools, materials and prints he has made, including works-in-progress for commissions, along with some of his calligraphy work. The mission of the League of NH Craftsmen is to encourage, nurture and promote the creation, use and preservation of fine contemporary and traditional craft through the inspiration and education of artists and the broader community. All of our lectures are free and held in the Bistro Room at the Meredith Bay Colony Club located at 21 Mile Point Drive in Meredith, NH. Space is limited so we request that you reserve your seats in advance by calling the Gallery at (603) 279-7920.

Old Time Rules Will Prevail: The Fiddle Contest in New Hampshire and New England

7:30 PM - Wolfeboro

Fiddle contests evolved from endurance marathons to playing a set number of tunes judged by certain specific criteria. Whether large or small, fiddle contests tried to show who was the "best," as well as preserve old-time fiddling and raise money for local organizations. In recent years, the fiddle contest has declined significantly in New England due to cultural changes and financial viability. The greatest legacies of these contests were recordings made during live competition. A sampling of these tunes is played during the presentation, as well as some live fiddling by the presenter, Adam Boyce.This event is free and open to the public through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

Last Shots for Patton’s Third Army – Lecture and Book Signing by author Robert Fuller Robert Fuller has identified the individuals who fired the last shots for every unit in the 3rd Army in the closing days of World War II and the circumstances under which those shots were fired. Fuller also provides a comprehensive history of the 3rd Army from its inception during World War I. He includes a brief overview of General Patton's career, adding a very interesting and revealing segment in which Patton explains in some detail how he expects each type of unit to fight and how these various units will integrate their efforts. The book is filled with anecdotal and factual events related right down to the platoon and squad level, with individual soldiers' stories told in their own words. Fuller's book will be a "must read" for anyone interested in the 3rd Army or in the soldiers who served on the ground during WWII and also for people generally interested in WW II. Robert P. Fuller has been interested in military history for many years. He holds B.S. (Education.) and M.S. (Education.) degrees from the University of Maine. Doors open at 6:00 program begins at 7:00.

Water Matters- The People’s Forest: The Story of the White Mountain National Forrest

7:00 PM - Holderness

In the late 1800s, New Hampshire’s White Mountains were ground zero for an environmental disaster caused by ruthless logging and the massive forest fires, erosion, and flooding that followed. The vast destruction launched a national battle over the fate of America’s forestlands and sparked one of the first grassroots conservation movements. Leading the way was a unique partnership of citizens, politicians, and business and civic groups that believed conservation could benefit both the environment and economy. This is the dramatic film, by Filmmaker David Huntley, of how those unlikely allies saved the White Mountains and created over 50 new National Forests and Grasslands in 40 states, totaling more than 20 million acres of public lands.

A Visit With Queen Victoria

7:00 PM - Meredith

In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria's diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th Century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders. This event is free and open to the public through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.

In his memorial project, he uses pieces of material from his father’s clothing to investigate memory, history, and the way clothing can shield and protect. Encaustic artist Tracy Spadafora, intrigued by the patterns in DNA code, juxtaposes nature’s elegant designs with the human-made landscape. Steven Zoldak’s functional pottery, following the rich history of the slip trail tradition, bridges historic patterns with the artist’s own calligraphy-inspired aesthetic.
