Every year since 2010, the Upper Saco Valley Land Trust invites local artists to visit properties that have been conserved with the help of the Land Trust and to get inspired! Every piece of art varies in both inspiration and composition, but all feature the same theme.
The theme of the 8th annual Art Celebrates Place show is “Historic Farms”. This year, participating artists have gone out “onto the land” at the Amos Merrill Homestead, Hayes Farm, and Dundee conservation easements in Conway and Jackson. A sampling of their work will be shown in the coming weeks.
The official opening of the 8th annual Art Celebrates Place opening will take place on Friday, April 7, 2017 from 5:00 – 7:30 PM at the Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s Nature Learning Center. Mark your calendars for this true community celebration filled with local art, music, and food–a true harbinger of spring for the Mount Washington Valley .
In 2016, the Land Trust created the first annual Art Celebrates Place calendar in attempts to capture these differences in print form to enjoy all year-round. Special thanks to our local business sponsors whose support made the 2017 Art Celebrates Place calendar possible:
