Amazing art happens when craftsmen are challenged to work beyond their comfort zone. That is the focus of the League of NH Craftsmen’s vibrant new fine craft exhibition, Pushing the Limits, on display from April 7 to June 23 at the Gallery at the League headquarters, 49 South Main Street in Concord, NH. The exhibition features 41 pieces created by 35 juried League members that are the result of each maker’s skill, boundary-pushing creative vision, and passion. A wide range of media are on display, including one-of-a-kind jewelry, fiber, pottery, and more.
“It is very exciting to see our juried members take risks and explore the boundaries of their medium,” said League Standards Manager Catherine Green. “You can’t help but marvel at the range of media, colors, textures, and visions – the exhibition is truly a sensory delight.”
An opening reception, where the public can meet and speak with the participating exhibitors, is scheduled for Friday, April 7th from 5 pm to 7 pm. We are excited to welcome the creator of the cardinal featured on our Pushing the Limits graphic, Robert Carrier, who will demonstrate his craft beginning at 5:30 PM during our opening reception.
The Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm, and Saturdays, 10 am to 4 pm, during the exhibition.
