Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance
(LACA) Autumn Arts Showcase, November 9–December 15, 2006. This popular
LACA event features the work of more than two dozen local artists, on display
and offered for sale at the gallery. In addition LACA has four great
special events planned, celebrating
holiday cheer! Come to one or all
four—and bring a friend!
First launched in the summer of 2005, LACA's "evening of spoken word" events have really been a hit—so much so, in fact, that they have now become a monthly event. LACA has moved their location to Crackskull's Book Store on Main Street in Newmarket, where participants and audience meet on the second Thursday of each month to enjoy a wonderful evening of poetry crafted by local wordsmiths. The Spoken Word event is open to the public and admission is free (donations accepted). Interested in sharing your work? Contact Arlon for more info, or to get signed up in advance.
Opening Night Artists' Reception
Paintings, prints, photography, jewelry and more can all be found at this wonderful community celebration of art in the seacoast. Join the fun as LACA honors participating artists with an artists' reception to be held at Ampers&, featuring a viewing gallery, artist meet-and-greets—and wine & cheese of course. The reception is open to the public and admission is free (donations accepted) Please come and support your art community. (Perhaps you'll even find that perfect holiday gift at the same time…!)
Captain Fiddle is in the
LACA is pleased to present a very special guest artist, local folk musician Ryan Thomson (aka "Captain Fiddle"). Thomson is an award-winning music and dance professional, who performs weekly on fiddle, banjo, flute, piano, accordion, pennywhistle, and other instruments as well. Come on downtown to Ampers& and hear him play on Friday night in a wonderfully intimate setting, surrounded by beautiful art. Always a delightful performer, this Newmarket resident and local favorite is sure to entertain us all. He will also have copies of his CDs on hand for purchase. While admission to this event is free, a suggested donation of $3/person is appreciated. Seating is limited, and these events are well-attended, so we suggest you arrive early to get yourself a good spot!

organization, whose purpose is to support the arts, culture and heritage
of Newmarket and its surrounding communities. All donations, and a portion
of the proceeds for all sales during the artists' reception, will go to LACA, to
help with establishing a permanent home for the arts in Newmarket.
