Find about 100 artists at Salmon Falls Mills open studios

By Heidi Masek

• Piece of Concord: Concord’s Melissa A. Miller donated the image of her painting “Bicentennial Square, Evening” to be reproduced as limited-edition giclee prints. Sales of the 100 prints will benefit the downtown preservation organization Main Street Concord, Inc. Meet Miller and buy one at a release reception Tuesday, Nov. 25, from 5 to 7 p.m., at McGowan Fine Art, 10 Hills Avenue in Concord. Contact Jay Haines, Main Street Concord interim executive director, at 226-2150 for details. Also see

• Indoor activities: Sure it’s a drive, but when you get there, you can explore studios of lots of artists and artisans, see live performances and entertain the kids at their “Children’s Art Stations.” The Salmon Falls Mills Open Studio organizers expect more than 100 artists and guest artists to participate, according to a release. The open studios run Saturday, Nov. 22, and Sunday, Nov. 23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1 Front St. in Rollinsford (749-8879, Wooden toys, paintings, furniture and jewelry are some of the things you might find.

Salmon Falls Mills are collecting nonperishable items and holding raffles to help fill Thanksgiving baskets for local families. Be forewarned, though, the mill is not handicapped accessible.

• Tours with the Currier: Want to know about the Currier’s glass collection? It’s pretty fancy. They hold two Focus Tours, “Exploring Art Glass in the Currier’s Collections,” Friday, Nov. 21, at noon, and Sunday, Nov. 23, at 3 p.m. Tours are free with admission, as is political analyst Dean Spiliotes’ talk Thursday, Nov. 20, at 4:30 p.m., “Campaigning with Pop Art.” The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Zimmerman House closes for the winter season in January, but you can reserve a spot on their Focus Tour “32 Simple and Basic Design Ideas Used by Frank Lloyd Wright to Make a Small House Seem Bigger,” Sunday, Nov. 23, at 3 p.m. Call 669-6144 or see for details. The Currier Museum of Art is at 150 Ash St. in Manchester.

Starved: An artist and filmmaker, along with other Monadnock artists, opened The Starving Artist: A Creative Collective at 10 West St. in Keene on Nov. 15.  Keri Wiederspahn founded and directed Creative Hands Art Studio & Atelier in New Jersey before she moved to Munsonville.

Admission costs $8 to $12, and children under 12 are admitted for free. (Three of Evans’ images appear in the 2006 film The Break-Up, according to Evans.) See or call 800-511-9725.
