Crafts at the Capitol is the creation of Henniker glass
artist, Gigi Laberge. Laberge wanted to have a fine
quality craft show during the holidays, "a special show
featuring the finest of crafts, at affordable prices."
Encouraged by a newspaper article explaining the
economic value to the community by shopping local, she
decided this was the year to, "make it happen." Knowing
the Capitol Center for the Arts as a wonderful venue to
showcase talent, Laberge rented space at the downtown
Concord landmark. Next, she invited a select group of
her favorite artists to join her. The artwork this group
creates amazes me; I want to buy something from every
artist here," Laberge says. "For me, this started as a
way to share my work with my friends in Concord, then as
way to share the work of other artists, and now, well
now it has a life of its own!"
"Crafts at the Capitol is more than a craft show,"
Laberge says, "it's a showcase of talent, spirit, and
community. It's awesome; it's an event not to be missed.
