Essence of Art
The Essence of Art’s first retail shop opened in 1992 in the North Conway Community. The artists and their products were well-received and consequently sales began to grow. In 1995, a professional potter was hired which provided another opportunity for individuals to learn a different skill.
Our mission has evolved over the years. In addition to teaching and supporting our individuals in the arts of weaving and pottery, we also provide opportunities for community interaction, personal growth and developing hidden creative talents.
Please stop by and visit our shop located at 10 Seavey Street in North Conway (open Mondays through Saturdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm). Meet our artists who are always happy to demonstrate their skills. Browse our inventory of hand towels, table runners, hats, scarves, bags, clothing, whimsical clay houses, platters, vases, flowers, bird houses, etc. We also welcome special requests. We promise to make your visit a memorable one!
