Artists of the Seacoast

Since 1996, local artists, businesses and volunteers have contributed to creating the Artists of the Seacoast calendar. 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.

Purchase the 2018 Calendar

The 2018 Artists of the Seacoast calendar is now available for purchase. Order your calendar through the mail (shipping and handling charges will apply) or purchase yours at Families First.

You can get your copy of the calendar at the stores listed below:


The calendar is mailed to hundreds of homes and businesses as one of our largest fundraisers, and it’s sold in retail shops throughout our community. Our calendar sponsors underwrite the cost of producing the calendar (including our lead sponsor, Portsmouth Regional Hospital), allowing us to put all proceeds from calendar sales and donations toward fulfilling our mission. Interested in becoming a calendar sponsor? Contact Paula Place at (603) 422-8208, ext. 132.

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. The deadline has passed to submit for the 2018 calendar. To receive the Call for Artwork announcement for next year, please contact Lauren at (603) 422-8208 ext. 126 and provide your email address.
