Picker Building artists find solitude stifling, instead they live their passion
The Picker Building at 99 Factory St. Ext. is a hidden gem in downtown Nashua. Without searching for the four-story structure behind Clocktower Place, it might be easily overlooked.
"People are often surprised to learn we are here. It would be nice to get more of a visual identity," Ceaser said this week while promoting the Picker Building's open house planned for Saturday.
"Everything we sell makes us proud and should make Nashua proud as well. Supporting the local arts fuels the economy," said Moriarty, who is hopeful that a lot of people will be interested in touring the building this weekend, visiting with area artists and perhaps purchasing a holiday gift that has been handmade locally.
Perhaps the most colorful studio in the building is occupied by Renaissance Glassworks, Inc., which specializes in fine handcrafted stained glass. The Picker Building has become a second home for owners Mark and Kathleen Frank.
"When people do stumble upon us, sales are often great. But for the most part, people don't know we are here," said Karen Bruson, a local artist who is trying to perfect a painting of Nashua's downtown landscape.
"We want to pass on our art to others, and that is what motivates us," said Moriarty, adding each local artist has their own niche for creativity and vision — something they all hope to share with others this weekend.
