President's Note

Dear Friends,

Hope you are having a fulfilled summer. September is here, which I enjoy the most. I love the cooler days; the landscape's changing color gives the most interesting compositions.

I was very pleased with our August 19th work party. It went very well and we accomplished a lot. Thank you to those who helped! It was hopping that day! The Winchendon History and Cultural Center's antique car show was going on and they were open for ice cream in the newly renovated Seppie's Ice Cream Parlor. People were curious and stopped by our barn, asking questions and saying they can't wait for us to open our doors.

We need your help with our upcoming Boot Drive-please contact me as soon as you so I can get a form to you to sign. The proceeds will go towards our track lighting system.

Boot Drive - Saturday, September 23rd, 9:00am - 1:00pm

My number is 978-407-1419

Great Day, Great Company, Great Food!  

GALA's Volunteer Work Day was very productive and fun! We got a lot done on Saturday the 19th. We finished staining all the shiplap boards, we painted and we mudded the drywall.

We thank all the wonderful volunteers that showed up, taking time out in their busy lives to help us put another dent into getting this project closer to getting completed. Our volunteers were GALA members and Art students from MWCC. We had great conversations and good food.

Mixed Media Exhibit by Maureen Ahern                   
The Jaffrey Civic Center, Jaffrey, NH

Gilson Pond by Maureen Ahern
The Jaffrey Civic Center will host a mixed media exhibit of paintings by New Hampshire artist, Maureen Ahern from September 8th-October 7th, 2017. An Opening Reception will be held on Friday, September 8th from 5pm to 7pm in the Cunningham Gallery. Both the reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.

Most of Maureen Ahern's latest work uses interference paint, along with other media.  Interference paint has the property of reflecting just half of the light spectrum. For instance, blue paint looks blue, but depending on the light source and where the viewer stands, will instead appear yellow (its opposite color on the light spectrum). The effect this has had on such pieces can be seen in this video [] where light is shown moving across the painting surface, causing the colors to change to their opposite. In addition to interference paint, many of Ahern's works utilize pieces of compact disc. The reflective surface of the disc amplifies the variable nature of the interference paint. Other media may include oil sticks, pencil, wax, nails, feathers, and other materials. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Maureen lives in New Hampshire where she works full-time in her studio.

"I grew up and lived by the coast of Massachusetts for many years. My fascination with the beauty and the power of the ocean continues to influence my work. Since coming to the Monadnock region of New Hampshire in 1981, I have explored the ever-changing aspects of water, the variables of light, air, color, and motion in nature; and the human spirit."

The Jaffrey Civic Center is located at 40 Main Street, Jaffrey, New Hampshire, next to the Library, parking in rear. Hours are Monday-Friday from 10am to 5pm (closed 12-1pm), Sat 10am-2pm. Admission is always free. For more information about us, call 603-532-6527, e-mail us at, visit our website, or "Like" us on Facebook.

Call to Artists: Summer Finale

The Londonderry Arts Council presents a one-day, free-admission, event that celebrates creativity and craftsmanship both visually and musically.

Fine artists and artisans and acoustic musical acts will entertain attendees. Activities will include children's fun.

Artist tents and vendor tables will be clustered throughout the property, offering artwork, fine crafts, food, and information of local interest. We have invited food trucks and other food sellers to participate.

Event planners foresee this becoming a "Signature Event" for Londonderry and the Region. Summer Finale has a different and broader focus than the traditional Town Old Home Day.

Show Date & Time: Saturday September 23, 2017 (Rain date: Sunday September 24) 10am - 4pm

Location: Outdoors at the Town Common on the corner of Mammoth & Pillsbury Roads in Londonderry, NH

Food vendors, artists, artisans, and select non-profit vendors as well as sponsor's tables will be intermixed throughout the property. Free nearby parking for all.

Music: Acoustic musicians (with the aid of sound equipment) will play the entire day on the stage. This location is perfect for attendees to bring a chair and stay for an hour or for the day. Note: This is not an open-mic event.

Promotion of Artists/Artisans: All artists & artisans will receive a FREE listing in the full-color program to be distributed to visitors, participants, and local businesses. You may also purchase a larger display ad in this program. This program image will be featured on the Arts Council Facebook Page and will remain on our web site for the year following Summer Finale.

Art On The Line
ArtsWorcester, Worcester, MA

Artists' Party for Art On The Line 
Thursday, September 14
5:30 to 7:30 PM
ArtsWorcester, 660 Main Street

Our signature fall fundraiser, Art On The Line, needs you. And to thank you, we are holding an artists' party.
For our fundraiser, hundreds of artists across the area donate to ArtsWorcester 5"x7" two-dimensional artworks, or, if that size is just too small, 8"x10". We gather them up, organize them, and scan them into online catalogues. Then, in early November, we suspend them all from the ceiling in a very temporary installation for Art On The Line, a fast and furious art sale at which they are all sold for $20 or $30 each. Guests--including donating artists--shop the online catalogues in advance, and, when the doors are opened, dash in to grab the ones they want. Every cent of the proceeds keeps us in operation.

Your 5"x7" (or 8"x10") artwork is your ticket to the artists' party on Thursday, September 14 (and to Art On The Line itself).  Join us from 5:30 to 7:30 PM for food, drinks, live music, and the chance to see old friends or meet new ones. Parking is free in the paved lots belonging to the Freemasons, at Ionic and Beacon Street (do not park in the gravel lot across the street).

Geography is not an obstacle: in previous years, we accepted works mailed in from states as far-flung as California and Florida.
How to participate: 
  • Membership is not required. All artists are welcome, at any age, level, or location.
  • Artwork must be sized precisely 5"x 7" or 8"x10"; artwork larger or smaller than those dimensions cannot be accepted.
  • All mediums, techniques, and level of experience accepted gratefully.
  • Artwork must be flat and light enough to be suspended from a bulldog clip.
  • We can accept up to four works per artist.
  • Clearly label your work with your name and medium, on the top right back of your work(s).
  • Please do not frame your work(s).
  • C.C. Lowell is donating 98-lb mixed-media paper for you to use if you like, available there.
  • Pre-registration is not required; just drop off your donations in person at the party or during gallery hours, or mail them to 660 Main Street, Worcester, MA, 01610.
Your donated artworks keep our exhibits running and free to all. Thank you for your support and participation!
