Freedom Historical Society 2017 Calendar


Attention Local Artists
The Freedom Historical Society (aka FHS) has issued a call for artists to submit images of their work in Freedom for consideration and inclusion in the FHS 2017 calendar.  More than 200 calendars will be printed and sold throughout Freedom and beyond.

Art selected for Paintings of Freedom will relate to a recognizable aspect of Freedom, and can have been completed at any time.  Representation of familiar locations, stories, history, and/or people of Freedom are desired. Seasonal themes are strongly desired.

FHS receipt on or before May 13.

Original two-dimensional art in all mediums may be submitted. Artists must be NH Carroll County residents or homeowners at the time of submission; Freedom artists receive strong preference. Selected original artwork must be available in case it needs to be re-photographed to meet production specifications.
