Our 2020 Symposium Is ON!

We are happy to announce that our Nashua International Sculpture Symposium is on!

Opening Ceremony is Thursday, August 20 at 5:30 beside our building.

The Stream can be seen at at 8:30 pm on August 20, and also on the Picker Building’s YouTube page, “Picker Artists & Nashua Symposium” (

We are following strict safety protocols from our City’s Health and Community Services department. We will stream the opening so that everyone can join in our celebration.

Our work site is open to visitors daily from 10-4, Monday through Saturday, beginning Monday, August 24, through September 9 (or so, depending on installation dates). Please feel free to join us, providing you bring your mask and remain socially distant.

Our Closing Ceremonies will be streamed in the same manner for all to join us online. Our Closing will be at the installation site this year.

We also are looking for sponsors to provide meals to our sculptors this year. Safety protocols in place mean we need to provide meals made in restaurants this year. Please visit our website, for details.

As always, we are happy to join partners with the Nashua International Sculpture Symposium. While at the site, call us (number on the door) if you would like to come inside. Our doors remain locked, so that we can control the number of people in the building at one time (with masks on). We will be happy to see you!

Shopping with us…

I’ve always loved spring. New budding trees and flowers and grass and all.

This year, we all know it’s different. Our beautiful building full of love and creativity is eerily quiet now that we have a lockdown and can’t let our wonderful customers in. Sometimes it’s just one of us, sometimes one or two, but mostly it’s quiet. And we really don’t like it this way.

We have created an online store for our customers to shop with us. Please visit us at:

And please pass it along too. You can order online and have us deliver, or you can order online and we will come outside with your purchases.

If you’re not sure what you’d like to buy but want to help us, you could purchase a gift certificate either for yourself, or for someone else for an upcoming holiday or birthday or graduation.

Please help us survive. We appreciate you all very, very much.

Happy 2020 Everyone

We hope you have had a wonderful holiday season, we sure have!

Thank you to all our wonderful customers who came by to see us. A special Thank You goes out to the WMUR Chronicle Team! We had such a great time with you in October and November, and feel very blessed to have been featured on your show.

We are huge fans of the show, and so we were so thrilled to have this opportunity. It has brought us wonderful exposure and we are so grateful!

So please, stop on by. We are open Tuesdays through Fridays from 9:30 to 5:00. Saturdays from 10:00 to 3:00. Mondays are a run around day for most of us, so sometimes we are here, sometimes not. As always, if our “Open” flag is flying on our front porch, please come on in!

Hope to see you soon 🙂

Welcome Summer :)

As we begin our summer solstice season, well, the calendar say it is anyway, it hasn’t exactly been warm here in New Hampshire yet. But we aren’t complaining, it’s not snow or ice so we’re fine with it !

Our summer schedule is a bit more relaxed. Mondays you might catch us, or maybe not. We have our “Open” flag that hangs outside our front porch when we are in. So on some Mondays you might catch us, others perhaps not.

The rest of the week we are here! And on Saturdays, from 10-1 we generally have Renaissance Glassworks and possibly a few other artists on site.

Please feel free to always email or text or call any of us that you would like to come and see, and we are very happy to accommodate your schedules when we can.

And please remember to add the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair to your calendars. The dates this year are August 3-11 at the Mount Sunapee Resort, located at 1398 NH Route 103 in Newbury, New Hampshire.

As always, thank you for your support and we hope you have a great summer !
