A visual arts showcase featuring more than 25 artist booths will be at Henry Law Park in Dover on Saturday as part of the Cochecho Arts Festival.

Paintings, pottery, sculptures, maps, monoprinting, and photography by some of the area's best artists will be on display, according to a press release by leaders at the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce.

Representatives of local art organizations Wrong Brain and The Dover Art Center will be there.

Wrong Brain is located on Third Street in Dover and provides a venue and outlet for unconventional, under-represented and emerging artists of all mediums in the Seacoast area through publications, multimedia events, open markets, exhibitions, discussions, workshops and community projects.

The Art Center is a creative community that has over 6,000 square feet of space in the Washington Street Mills in Dover. The center has 10 artist studios and a gallery space.

The showcase is sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, according to the press release.

Cochecho Arts Festival, underwritten by Orpheum Apartments and organized by the Chamber, features concerts, children’s shows and a family movie night.

According to the website, the festival began in the summer of 1987, after the Chamber had accepted the challenge of matching an anonymous donation to produce a summer concert series.

The family movie night will be the last event of the summer on Saturday, Aug. 14.

A full schedule can be seen here and all events are free and open to the public.
