"Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year." - Chad Sugg

Fall is coming to an end and winter is approaching. But no one said that this can't be considered one of the most wonderful and beautiful times of the year! Here in New Hampshire, you can enjoy the scenery and exciting events year-round.

This weekend brings us a variety of entertainment. Whether you want to head to the theatre, learn a new skill, or celebrate the changing season, we have it all!

And don't forget, we love to see all of your favorite NH made memories. Be sure to share them with us in the comments or on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Happy Weekending!

 

1. Floor Van de Velde: Variations on ColorFields

The McIninch Art Gallery presents Floor van de Velde: Variations on ColorFields. Variations on Colorfields reinterprets the central ideas of non-objective art, particularly the color field movement and post painterly abstraction in luminous three-dimensional form and explores the perception and tension between light and color. Like rhythm and tempo in music, the dance between light and color can induce vibrations, pulse and movement.

The light sculptures in this series explore energy in color: the objective is not to focus on the objects alone, but to produce sensations of color movements in the eye of the beholder, vibrations that allow the observer to experience the conditions of perception itself and to experience color as a language of rhythm.
