18 Jul Gallery Walk Tonight in Center Sandwich
This Lakes Region town can be counted among NH communities who offer popular art walks, where visitors can tour local galleries, enjoy refreshments and hors d’oeuvres, and meet the artists whose work is on exhibit. Tonight is one of those special nights! Stroll the streets of Center Sandwich, see what’s new in the art world, and enjoy music and great food at the Corner House Inn afterward.
On Friday, July 18th, Center Sandwich will be holding its traditional summer Gallery Walk from 5 – 7 p.m. The Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery, The Sandwich Home Industries, and Surroundings Art Gallery will open their doors after hours to celebrate art, music, and conversation as they feature the work of New England artists and those who have a connection to the area. Guests who visit all three galleries and have their gallery pass stamped at each location will receive 15% off dinner at the Corner House Inn on Main Street.
The Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery exhibits art in all media by leading contemporary artists, showing an eclectic collection of figurative and abstract work that focuses on originality and innovation. The gallery is currently featuring work by painter John Winslow and photographer Forrest K. Elliott.
Surroundings Art Gallery displays original artwork in a variety of media that focuses on New Hampshire landscapes. In addition, the gallery has many types of folk art, woodcarvings, and a unique collection of stained glass panels. The gallery is now exhibiting work by Tom Pirozzoli, Lisa Mitchell, and Ted Nichols, who are new artists to Surroundings this year.
Sandwich Home Industries exhibits work by juried members of the League of NH Craftsmen in a wide variety of traditional and contemporary craft, including pottery, glass, prints, wood, jewelry, metal, stone, and basketry. The gallery is dedicated to education, and offers workshops, demonstrations, and classes throughout the summer.
After a tour of all the galleries, relax with dinner and live music at the Corner House Inn. This Friday, guests can enjoy beautiful guitar playing by singer-songwriter Jonathan Sarty in the pub, and dinner in both the restaurant and pub will be served until 10:00 p.m. The Corner House Inn is known for its Storytelling Dinner series each October through May, as well as other special events throughout the year. And the food is top-notch!
