Get Involved

We are delighted to offer members with many ways to get involved from entering exhibits, hosting Art Shares, attending regional meetings and more! We look forward to meeting you to share our love for art and the creative process.

Art Shares

An Art Share is a casual meeting of artists who are interested in sharing and talking about their artwork. It’s a friendly gathering geared to encourage. It’s also a place to express ideas and creative thinking. You don’t need to be a member to join us for our Art Shares. Art Shares are hosted by members in different locations around the state of New Hampshire. Dates, times, and other details vary. Come on your own or with a friend to find out what we’re all about.

Be sure to let Marcia know if you’ve scheduled an event as she will help to spread the word.

Artist Trading Cards

WCA/NH holds Artist’s Trading Card (ATC) exchanges five times a year. ATCs are mini works of art done on 2-1/2 in. x 3-1/2 in. cards. Each artist makes six cards and mails them to our ATC coordinator along with a SASE. WCA/NH keeps a card for the archive, mixes up the remaining cards and sends each artist five different cards. Each participant receives five mini works of art for the cost of postage!

Bi-Annual Members Meetings Spring/Fall

Spring and Fall Members Meetings are held in different locations around the state giving us the opportunity to reach out to artists from all over NH. The meetings are typically held on a Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is time to visit, with a short business meeting in the morning, followed by “potluck” lunch, then programming related to the arts in the afternoon. It is a wonderful time to network.

Our next members meeting is October 25 at the Jaffrey Civic Center, 40 Main Street, Jaffrey, NH at 10:00 a.m.

This year’s meeting will coincide with the Tell Me a Story exhibit from October 17-November 15, 2014. We will be introducing our version of a “PechaKucha 20 x 20”–see the home page article for more information.


The Exhibitions Committee offers a unique opportunity for artists interested in learning how to mount a successful exhibition. The committee works as a team to create a variety of exhibition opportunities each year to our members. The committee meets on the third Thursday of each month from 10 to Noon. All members are welcome to attend. Contact Exhibitions Chair, Paulette Brace at for more information.

Get on the Board

Meet the people who get it done by getting involved in the inner workings of WCA/NH. A great place to build skills in communication, and management by directing our inspired membership. The Board meetings are held each 2nd Friday of the month from 10 am to 12 noon at the Chamberlin house on 44 Pleasant Street in Concord NH.
