LONDONDERRY — Art in Action, in conjunction with NH Open Doors, returns Saturday, Nov. 5, and Sunday, Nov. 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Artists and artisans will be demonstrating their creative process in two locations, Mack's Apples Farm Market on Mammoth Road and Shady Hill Greenhouse Number 2 and Nursery on the corner of Mammoth and Adams Roads. Work will be for sale.

A winner will be drawn at 3 p.m. on Sunday at Mack's Apples to receive a one-of-a-kind painting by renowned local artist, Michael James Toomy. "Sons Of The Republic" is being raffled off, with 100 percent of the proceeds to benefit MooreMart, a local nonprofit group that sends care packages to soldiers serving overseas.

Raffle tickets will be available prior to the drawing. They cost $10 each or three for a $25 donation.

Artists located at Mack's will include Ginny Nickerson of Deerfield; Susan Hanna and Bruce Stern of Londonderry; Maria Williams of Manchester; Marilyn Heaps of Milford; Hal Kirby of Newmarket; and Debra Grubbs of Salem.

Artists at Shady Hill Greenhouse No. 2 will be Corrine Dodge Ingeborg Seaboyer, Susan Monty and John Sweeney, all from Derry; Brendan Keegan of Lowell; Tina Gagnon of Salem; and Patti Crowley and Lili Mayer of Windham.

The public is invited to stop by to chat with the artists and observe their creative process throughout the weekend. Admission is free. Mack's Apples will offer apple and cider tasting, product sampling and entertainment.
