The Insiders: The Cappies tradition and New England’s tiny treasures
It’s that special time of year again! We’ve announced the Capital Area People’s Preference awards (known colloquially as the Cappies) in today’s Insider, so the coolest thing you could do today would be read all about that. Once you’re done perusing our pages (it’s the biggest issue we’ve ever put together!), come back here and read the rest of this column.
Great, you’re back. Here’s what else we’ve got lined up for you today. There is a great exhibit at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Gallery (49 S. Main St.) entitled “Continuing the Tradition.” This latest exhibit showcases new League members. As with every exhibit at the League gallery, there is a wide array of different styles on display. Where else can you find a felted lion’s head hanging across from an expertly designed muzzleloader rifle (besides Muppet Ernest Hemingway’s house, of course)? Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m to 4 p.m. today. For more information, visit nhcrafts.org.
There’s also a fresh exhibit over at the Concord Conservation Center gallery (54 Portsmouth St.). “Rooted in New England: Small Treasures” features the work of multi-media artist (and League member) Susann Foster Brown. The Concord Conservation Center can be used for conferences, so call 224-9945 before visiting.
Finally, we’ve got some corrections to mistakes we made in last week’s columns. First, the East Coast is about to be inundated by the 17-year cicada, not the first Jon Secada tour in 17 years, as we originally reported. Second, dubstep artist Skrillex was born Sonny Moore, not Skrilliam Exeter III, as we claimed. Lastly, Henrik Lundqvuist is a professional hockey goaltender, not an entirely pervious and physically intangible hologram in the shape of a goaltender incapable of stopping matter, as we reported. We’ll try to do better next week.
