“keep squam and carry on,”
is what they say in holderness, nh

A big thank you to Squam Art Workshops for hosting yet another inspiring, exhilarating art fair. I will carry a bit of squam with me until next time. Can’t wait.

On this visit, I learned a fascinating fact about Rockywold-Deephaven Camps:
“Every winter, long after the last guests have departed, a ritual takes place at RDC – the harvesting of lake ice. When the ice off the Deephaven shore becomes eleven or twelve inches thick (usually in late January or February) the work begins. In one week, 200 tons of ice are taken from the lake by a crew that includes many who have done the job for decades and a few who follow in their father's and grandfather's footsteps. The ice will fill the cottage ice boxes in the summer, keeping alive a connection between the camps and the natural environment that surrounds them.” from the RDC website

squam-fair bound, saturday september 15th, 7:30-10pm

In just a little more than a week I will be heading to that magical place called Squam Lake, to participate in the fall squam art fair. I can’t wait. My first time at squam was in June, and it was like being wrapped in a cozy blanket, sitting by the fire, sipping a yummy drink, talking to dearest friends. I had no idea I would find so many kindred souls, and I was just there for one night. Just think what it would be like to participate in a squam workshop for four days. Here are some of the talented artists participating in the fair:

I hope you can make it, if not this time, then soon.
