While the mills certainly took center stage in the growth of Newmarket, they were, by no means, the only game in town. Take a stroll back through time and learn about the commerce and industry of Newmarket’s past: listen to memories about past merchants, shared with us by Newmarket natives; search among the townspeople in enlarged photographs for a familiar face; and marvel at how the downtown has changed over time—or, in some cases, has remained much the same.

Presented by the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance (LACA), the exhibit will showcase aDetail, photo transfer-monoprint by Shaune McCarthy combination of images and artifacts from the archives of the New Market Historical Society, and feature the ever-popular folkloric art of Newmarket native Edouard Langlois and beautiful, mixed media interpretations of historic photos by Shaune McCarthy. A wide selection of handmade jewelry and handbags by several LACA artisans will also be available for purchase.

Admission is Free; $3 Suggested Donation. Proceeds to benefit the New Market Historical Society and the Lamprey Arts & Culture Alliance.
