The Gallery at The Craft Center and League of NH Craftsmen Headquarters Hosts Fine Craft Exhibition: New Hampshire Furniture Masters, Prison Outreach Program and the Guild of NH Woodworkers
The League of NH Craftsmen is hosting an exhibition of fine, handcrafted furniture that spotlights the artistry and craftsmanship of New Hampshire’s finest woodworkers from the New Hampshire Furniture Masters (NHFM), the Guild of NH Woodworkers, and the League. A unique aspect of this exhibition is that is features the work of inmates who have been trained in the NHFM’s Prison Outreach Program. (A list of all participants appears at the end of this release.) Visitors will see 65 handcrafted wood pieces that are designed and built to last for generations, including tables, cabinets, chests, vases, clocks, bowls, jewelry boxes, spoon sets, music stands and more. Much of the furniture on display is available for purchase. The exhibition is on display at The Gallery at the League of NH Craftsmen Headquarters on 49 S. Main Street in Concord, NH. The Gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, with extended hours on Thursdays until 7:00 pm, and Saturday, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
The public will be able to meet and speak with the participating craftspeople during the opening reception on Friday, April 4 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. In celebration of the gifts that trees give us, there will be a maple tasting event during the reception, courtesy of Fuller’s Sugarhouse in Lancaster, NH. Since 1972, the Fuller family has been producing high-quality, award winning New Hampshire maple syrup, maple cream, and maple candy.
“It is a thrill to host an exhibition that encompasses the broadest view of the craftspeople who are working with wood in New Hampshire,” said League Executive Director Susie Lowe-Stockwell. “Many of the League’s juried members are also members of the Furniture Masters, the Guild, and the Prison Outreach program. Two of the inmates from the Prison Outreach Program, whose work is in the exhibition, are juried members of the League, having gone through our rigorous jury process. One in particular, Eric Grant, has won awards for his technique and skill at the League’s Annual Craftsmen’s Fair.”
Please be aware that there is a scammer answering these ads. Be careful!!!!
I recommend that you only take CASH or checks from people you know. Very little of the stuff that is advertised is so rare or such a great deal that someone would hire an “agent” to ship it.
If you are selling something online, as a business or through classifieds ads, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam.
The scammer will contact you, make you an offer—often quite generous—then make payment through credit card or cheque. They will be for an amount that is greater than the agreed price.
The scammer will contact you with an apology for the overpayment, offering a fake excuse. The scammer might tell you that the extra money was included to cover agent’s fees or extra shipping costs. Or they may just say they simply made a mistake when writing the cheque.
The scammer will then ask you to refund the excess amount or they will ask for you to forward the amount through to a third party. They will ask for this to through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer such as Western Union. You then discover that their cheque has bounced or the credit card had been a stolen or fake card.
A newer variation on this scam involves online sales, usually through classified sites, where the scammer pretends to have made a payment for a larger than agreed amount through services such as PayPal by sending a fake receipt of payment. The scammer will claim that the money is being held until you forward on the extra money.
If you send any money, you will not get it back. If you have already sent the ‘sold’ item you will lose this as well. At the very least, the scammer will have wasted your time and prevented you from accepting any legitimate offers on your sale.
I just wanted other Sellers to be careful as I see some valuable machines for sale here.
