Artists of the Seacoast Calendar

Since 1996, local artists, businesses and volunteers have contributed to creating the Artists of the Seacoast calendar each year. Their efforts help ensure that affordable health care and family support will always be available at Families First. All donations and proceeds from calendar sales go directly to helping our clients, your Seacoast neighbors.


Submit Your Artwork

Each February, Families First announces the Call for Artwork where local Seacoast artists submit original works to be considered for inclusion in the next calendar. Please contact Julia (603) 422-8208 x126 to be added to the email list to be notified when submissions are being accepted.


Because design and production costs are covered by generous local businesses who sponsor the calendar (almost 2,000 distributed) or donate/discount their services, all proceeds support Families First. Thank you to our Calendar Sponsors! 

Interested in becoming a calendar ad sponsor? Contact Paula Place, (603) 812-1671.
