This summer, many of the art galleries in Meredith will be offering a very special program of classes and workshops to bring a variety of hands-on lessons to the guests and residents of this picturesque and inspiring lakeside NH village. The Artists as Teachers program, a joint effort by Gallery 51, the lakes gallery at chi-lin, Vynn Art Gallery, and Kairos Art Space, was created to encourage people to come to Meredith to not only find great art, but to be able to study it with the artists themselves.
The Artists as Teachers program will be held throughout July and August at each of the participating galleries, with a diverse schedule of classes taught by respected and accomplished artists from across New England. On Thursday, June 28th, the galleries will hold opening receptions for the new program, in a setting where guests can view the artists’ exhibits, learn all about the classes being offered, and have the first chance to sign up for one or several workshops.

Looking for a more relaxed holiday outing or a unique, artistic gift for someone special? This Thursday, December 9th, several galleries in Meredith will brighten up the evening with refreshments, music, and special discounts as part of the First Annual Meredith Village Art Walk.
Both new and long-established galleries in Meredith will be participating in this first-time event, which is modeled after similar community art walks like Portsmouth’s Art ‘Round Town or Portland’s First Friday Art Walk. Visitors can meander through town and enjoy beautiful local and international art while socializing with artists and neighbors alike!
At the lakes gallery at chi-lin, Craig Jaster, an accomplished jazz musician, will be performing live music while guests sip and stroll through the gallery and view artwork from all over the world, as well as an amazing new Asian jewelry collection. Well-known designer Marsha Gintzler will be on hand to talk about her beautiful new line, Pearls Near Jade, which mixes antique Chinese pieces with semiprecious Asian stones and pearls.
Gallery 51 Fine Art and Hodecker-George Gallery will both have special discounts on most artwork for the event, and Vynnart Art Supplies has a number of special promotions for that evening only. The Fine Carpet Gallery is also offering 20% off storewide in addition to some surprise offerings for the evening.
Come to Meredith Village to share a fun night with friends, and show your local galleries and artists a little love this holiday season!
