CURRENT EXHIBITION

Summer Postcard Vert KPUETERNAL SUMMER
July 8-August 27, 2017

Eternal Summer is an exhibit of contemporary photography that evokes the imagery reflected in Celia Thaxter’s quote, “There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.” The photography conveys a sense of summer that feels lovely and timeless. Children playing, swimming, water, carnivals, gardens, the sea and summer breezes are all reflected in the work.

The exhibit showcases the work of six New England artists; Shawna Gibbs, Renée Giffroy, Susan Lirakis, Maria Manolaros, Maxine McDonald, and Jean Stimmell.

2018 EXHIBITION OF ARTIST/WRITER TEAMS


DEADLINE: AUGUST 14, 2017

TWIGGS GALLERY in Boscawen is calling for writers/poets and artists with a deep connection to New Hampshire to join together. Select collaborative teams will be invited to submit an exhibition proposal for new work using New Hampshire Old Home Week as their point of inspiration.




2018 EXHIBITION DATES: JULY 21-SEPTEMBER 2, 2018

COME BACK, COME BACK: Artists and writers collaborate to honor New Hampshire Old Home Week

Old Home Week was created by New Hampshire Governor Frank West Rollins. In 1897, he wrote, “I wish that in the ear of every son and daughter of New Hampshire, in the summer days, might be heard whispered the persuasive words: Come back, come back. Do you not hear the call? What has become of the old home where you were born? Do you not remember it – the old farm back among the hills, with its rambling buildings, its well sweep casting its long shadows, the row of stiff poplar trees, the lilacs and the willows?”

Twiggs Gallery will celebrate NH Old Home Week 2018 with an exhibition of new work from writers and artists with deep connections to New Hampshire. Other events, programs, and activities will be happening throughout the exhibition. The gallery, on King Street in Boscawen, is a beautiful new space that features work by local and regional artists, as well as classrooms and a gift shop (twiggsgallery.wordpress.com).
