Color is often used to evoke meaning and emotion in art. The absence of color has the same effect, communicating a different mood and beauty. The League of NH Craftsmen challenged its juried members to create fine craft in black, white and shades in between, with a pop of color if desired. The result is the League’s latest multi-media exhibition titled Black and White Encore, which explores the diversity and range of work created by League juried members in this specific palette. Visitors will see a wide variety of handcrafted art, including wood folk art; fiber wall hangings, placemats, African ceremonial pieces; scenic photography; wearable art including hats, shawls, scarves, and jewelry; glass and clay vases and sculptures; mixed media art and more. Most items are available for purchase. The exhibition is open to the public from January 12th to March 28th at the Exhibition Gallery at League Headquarters, 49 South Main Street in Concord, NH.
The public can meet and speak with the artists and craftsmen during the exhibition’s opening reception on Friday, January 12th from 5 pm to 7 pm.
