Long music line-up for Art Walk Nashua
By Heidi Masek

• Court update: Former Kimball-Jenkins Estate office manager Nicole Clock Hanlon of Manchester was federally indicted last year for fraud. Her trial was scheduled for September, but a request for a postponement was recently granted for October. The indictments allege that she used unauthorized Home Depot and MasterCard credit cards. Her indictment Nov. 28, 2007, came the same day that the Merrimack County probate judge met with trustees of Carolyn Jenkins’ will and trust and representatives from the state’s attorney general. At the hearing, Judge Richard Hampe delved into the matter of rumors of a loss of up to $100,000 due to employee embezzlement from Kimball-Jenkins. At the time, Kimball-Jenkins School of Art users were concerned about an alleged plan from the trustees to transfer the estate to the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen. Hampe did not allow for the transfer. A continuation of that hearing was scheduled for Sept. 25, 2008, but has been postponed to Thursday, Oct. 2, at 9:30 a.m. because Hampe is scheduled to be out of town Sept. 25.

• Wine and dogs: The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire will feature a series of work by New Boston artist Molly Poole on labels of at least five different types of local wine as part of a fundraiser for the nonprofit. Poole, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design who holds a BFA in illustration, won the wine label competition the League held this summer. Poole ( also supports a number of canine charities through her artwork and fundraises for medical costs of animals in need. Learn more at

Weekend of art in Nashua: Art Walk Nashua is a collection of open studio and gallery events in downtown Nashua and its millyards. It used to happen four Saturdays each year. However, for 2009, Art Walk was changed to run just once. Organizers at City Arts Nashua cited feedback from visitors and participants for the switch. The big weekend this year is Saturday, Sept. 20, with events from noon to 8 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 21, from noon to 4 p.m. at about 17 venues. This is Art Walk’s fourth year.

Several of the venues will offer refreshments and live entertainment or demonstrations. Media include pottery and paintings, photography, stained glass, jewelry, and fair trade crafts from around the world. Most downtown area businesses and retail shops will be open and some offer Art Walk specials.

Hit up several studios at the Picker Building, 99 Factory St. Extension. Art Ferrier’s photos, “Tools of the Trade,” are up at Chimera Gallery in Picker. Rock and blues guitarist Ed Lyons of Lowell, Mass., whose guitar collection is featured in the photos, is expected to perform with local sax player Doc Michaud at Chimera during Art Walk. Warm Stone Studio features Kim Griffin’s pottery in Picker ( Studio 99 features live music on Picker’s fourth floor.

The Nashua Public Library at 2 Court St. exhibits digital photography by Crystal Nadeau. Meet her Saturday between 1 and 5 p.m. Refreshments are donated by Richard’s Bistro of Manchester. Twenty-five local authors will give readings and signings Sunday, between 2 and 4 p.m. at NPL. The Nashua Historical Society hosts Vietnamese traditional dance at the Florence Speare Museum, 5 Abbott St., Saturday at 1:30 p.m. (

Nashua Area Artists Association’s Gallery One, inside 5 Pine St. Extension, hosts music from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday. Spirit Fiddle plays Saturday at 2 p.m., at Gallery One, with champion fiddler Robin Warren and guitarist Brian Clancey. Their style ranges from Southern and Texas swing to bluegrass, Parisian, French-Canadian and Celtic. Also inside 5 Pine St. Extension, vote for your favorite artwork submitted in a contest for use for the Winter Holiday Stroll, organized by Great American Downtown.

Downtown, stop by 1 World Trading Co. at 111 Main St. or “Art on Main,” which the Hollis Arts Society is bringing to Designwares and Myoptic on Main Street between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. Yellow Taxi Productions presents Ronald Harwood’s play, Taking Sides, at 4 and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Hunt Building and at 4 p.m. Sunday.

Two new public artworks, created in May in Nashua’s first International Sculpture Symposium, will be stops on the Art Walk map. “For Frank Lloyd Wright” by Czech sculptor Vaclav Fiala has been installed in front of Elm Street Middle School, and will be dedicated in a ceremony Thursday, Sept. 18, at 1:30 p.m. “For Frank Lloyd Wright” is sponsored by Charles and Meri Goyette in memory of their son Robie Goyette. (See for information about the sculpture symposium going on now in Brookline.)
