The New Hampshire Furniture Masters Association presents On the Street – Works from the NH & Maine Prison Outreach Program, a new exhibition at their Gallery in Concord, NH. This exhibition features work by inmates participating in the Furniture Masters’ Prison Outreach Programs in the New Hampshire and Maine State Prisons. Visit the Gallery at 49 S.

A variety of hand-crafted fine furniture is on display including jewelry boxes, tables and desks, a bookcase, and Shaker boxes. Many pieces of furniture on display are for sale. This exhibition is on display until September 11th.
The Prison Outreach Program was founded in 1999 and is run by the Furniture Masters’ non-profit sister organization, the American Furniture Masters Institute. This program educates select inmates on the art of fine furniture making. Rotating members of the Furniture Masters volunteer their time to teach this program.

This reception is being held in conjunction with the League of NH Craftsmen’s new exhibition Celebrating 85 – The Stevens Collection, which is on display across the hall in the Gallery of the League of NH Craftsmen Headquarters.
