Shop local this season at our Annual Holiday Open Studio Event!

I know it seems as if the holidays are far away, but actually they’re much closer than we realize.  It’s less than a month to our Annual Holiday Open Studio Event!

We plan for our Annual Holiday Open Studio Event each year to be the Saturday after the Thanksgiving weekend.

So this year, it will be Saturday, December 2 from 10-4.

If you are in the area, please stop by and pickup one of our Save the Date cards.  Bring it back with you on December 2 and enter to win a gift basket containing an item from each of our studios!  Perfect timing for holiday gift giving.

Art Walk Weekend is here!

Good Morning:

We are so excited to be hosting our first Art Walk with all of us at our new location.  Last year’s Art Walk was completely different for us, we were still in the process of building our new location, and the walls were barely up!  But this year we are settled, and happy to be hosting this city wide event once again.

So, please join us this weekend.  We can be found at Stop Number 21 on the map below (lower left corner of the map).  A larger, printable map can be found at CityArtsNashua.org.

We are so excited and proud to open our doors to you all!  See you then 🙂

Happy Holidays One and All!!!

I’m sitting back enjoying a coffee on this Christmas Eve afternoon, reflecting on 2016, and the wonderful people in our lives.

It’s been a year of significant change for all of us at 3 Pine Street.  Some of us have our studios as our main source of income, some secondary income, some hobbyists.  All of us have plenty of equipment and supplies and for the first 7 months of the year we worried of what would become of our businesses, our studios and our things.

Beginning in late July, as we embarked on our new adventure of the demo and rebuild in our new place, our focus changed.  Excitement of our potential, concern over funding, coordinating contractors and working out studio spaces.  All became a 24-7 work in progress for us.

Now, we are happily settled.  The holiday season has been exciting for us.  We received our Certificate of Occupancy just in time for our Grand Opening Celebration weekend.  And just this past week we hosted our first Holiday Party.

We are now open, regular working hours.   If you happen to be downtown or coming off the Broad Street Parkway, look for our “open” flag.  If it’s flying high, we are open and welcome you in.  Come for a look around, maybe purchase a handmade gift for yourself or someone else.  Schedule a class or two, or commission one of us for a special piece.  We will be happy to see you.

We hope you are enjoying the holidays, and a Happy New Year to you too!!!

 

We’ve Made It !!!

Well, we’ve made it everyone!  Our Grand Opening Celebration Weekend is upon us.  We will be celebrating on:

Saturday, December 3, from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Sunday, December 4, from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM

Please join us as we celebrate our new place!

Go Fund Us

We need your help!

We are striving to maintain and grow our cohesive artist community that originated in the Nashua Millyard’s historic Picker building.

Our beloved Picker Building was sold and we were forced to find new residence. We were very lucky to find our new location in a beautiful, 19th Century building right around the corner.

Our struggle is finding the funds to fit up our new location.

As we begin our demo of the new space and move forward on our own.  We’ve never done this before, but we’re learning 🙂

Studs are up and so now we tackle flooring…. ourselves – another thing we’ve never done before 🙂

Flooring is expensive!  So we chose plywood.  Looks great now that it’s stained and the polyurethane is applied   🙂

Although we have made great strides, there’s still a long way to go.  We still need HVAC and plumbing.  Also smoke alarms and the fire suppression system raised.

This is way more than we can handle. So we are reaching out to our friends, family and community for support.

We need to move in by November 1, 2016, so the pressure is on!

Any contribution (time, experience, or money  you could make to help us reach our goal of moving is greatly appreciated by us all.
