In honor of the second annual running of Newmarket's Great Bay Half Marathon, the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance is sponsoring an exhibit featuring LACA artists & athletes. The exhibit, which opens with a Mimosa & Pastries Opening Reception from 12-2 on Saturday, 4/5, includes a nice mix of race-themed paintings, paintings of downtown Newmarket & Great Bay, and photography of runners and of views along the marathon race course. Participating LACA artist-members include Jason Bombaci, Erik Johnson (our marathon runner!), Russ Simon, and Candace Reed Stella. In addition, we also offer a wonderful selection of handmade jewelry & handbags by Barbara Smith McLaughlin, Cara O'Connell, Mary Phillips, Leigh Rodriguez, and Julie Shope.

The gallery will hold special weekend hours during the race weekend: Saturday, 12–5 and Sunday, 12–3 PM. The exhibit runs through April 24. Admission is Free; $3 Suggested Donation. Proceeds to benefit the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance.
