The beautiful murals representing the four seasons in Tamworth are finished and ready to be mounted and framed. They were created by Brett students and teachers and people from all around the community: of the community, by the community, for the community. They will be toured round to various community locations next summer, but you have a brief chance to see them tomorrow at the Farmers' Market. They're hanging in the hallway going into the cafeteria, and just down the hall toward the middle school end of the building. See them if you can—they're large, and these low res digital images do not do justice to the extraordinary detail they contain. It has to be said: the kindergartners made the rainbow in "Spring", the first part of that mural.
Enormous thanks to everyone at the Brett School, and especially to art teacher Melanie McBrian for opening her classroom to Marcy. Thank you to the extraordinary, creative and hardworking Brett students. Thank you to our many volunteers, in particular Michelle Cleveland, Sue Colten and Margaret Rieser, and to the folks at The Tamworth Lyceum, the Cook Library, and the Community School. A soft, warm thank you in many vibrant colors to Marcy Schepker for her boundless energy, creativity, generosity and kindness.
Arts Council of Tamworth is supported in part by a grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts & the National Endowment for the Arts. Enormous thanks to our residency sponsors Meadow Pond Animal Hospital and Settlers’ Crossing for funding creative activities open to every member of this community, to the Gibson/Woodbury Foundation for their generous materials grant, and to the Tamworth PTA.
