Artist Larry Frates, Gilmanton Year-Round Artist in the Library,

offers a painting demonstration during a reception on Saturday, May 11.


Artist Larry Frates returns to the Gilmanton Year-Round Library as Artist in the Library from May through July.   At a reception on Saturday afternoon, May 11 (1:30 - 3 pm) Larry will offer a painting demonstration from 2-2:30.  


A long-time resident of Gilmanton, Larry Frates has been an artist and educator for more than forty years.  In 1973 he established the Frates Creative Arts Center in Laconia which offers classes in art, dance and theater, as well as art supplies.  He has been recognized as a professional artist with works exhibited at the Smithsonian and many other museums.  As an educator, he has been selected over the years to be part of cultural exchange delegations to Brazil, Russia, and Lithuania through Partners of the Americas and the Samantha Smith Foundation.  During his Fulbright year in Scotland  he helped to develop a collaborative arts program between the Orkney Islands Education Council, Aberdeen College, and USA schools.


Throughout his career, Larry has balanced his ability to think with creativity and his passion to teach through creativity.  As an art teacher, curriculum coordinator, creative consultant, or artistic director for the On Stage Theater Company, he continues to act as a catalyst for “creative change and real-world innovation.”   For details about the artist and his work check out his website,
