ArtWorks Gallery/Chocorua Creative Arts Center is a NH non profit dedicated to the education, promotion and appreciation of the Arts through our gallery, workshops and events.
Our intention is to liven the Community through Creativity.
Art Works started in 2010 at the Tamworth Farmers Market as a group of 8 artists and has grown incredibly with the help and support of our artists and community. Our name is derived from our location in the beautiful village of Chocorua, formerly known as Tamworth Iron Works, hence “Art Works.”
Our name says it all, our mission is To Make Art Work For Everyone, the makers and the enjoyers. We function with a non-profit mentality offering a venue for local artists to display and sell their work while striving to keep overhead low and quality high. We are all volunteers working together “to bring art to the masses”.
Our showroom started as a 10×10 foot tent set up on Sat mornings on a 12 pitch slope making leveling and securing a harrowing experience. Despite this, it was soon obvious that we had a good thing going and the search for a display space with walls that didn’ ‘t blow over in the Autumn breeze was soon underway. We have landed in the most gorgeous location in an antique farmhouse with views of Mount Chocorua and lots of natural light flowing through the windows enhancing the artwork displayed within.
Our gallery hosts Fine Artists and Crafters from the surrounding area. It is amazing how much local talent there is in our little corner of the world. The showroom consists of large artwork to hang over your mantle to tiny tokens great for saying “Thank you” or “Just because”. We have amazingly colored blown glass, heirloom furniture, wearables and jewelry, unique art cards, pottery, sculpture, and much more. We hope you will come visit and enjoy the many works we have on offer.
We are open year round, weekends only in the Winter and 7 days a week in the Summer. We are always willing to try and accommodate if you need a gift and we are not open, call and we will arrange a meeting. We offer gift certificates and will set up gift registries. Both excellent options to help ensure the perfect gift.
