Merry Schmidt Watercolor Paintings in Parish House Gallery
September 10 - December 1, 2017

from the artist:
"Teaching full time and raising a family afforded me little time for personal enrichment, but once my nest was empty I started taking various art classes as time permitted: basic drawing, figure drawing, pottery, and painting—all of which contributed to skill development for someone who has never referred to herself as an artist.

Now that I’m retired, I have more time for creative pursuits and I continue to enjoy painting as the mood and inspiration strike me, but it is especially rewarding when I can put some time in each day. And since Vermont has beauty at every turn, I will never run out of subject matter."

The Circle of Care Committee reminds everyone that we are here for all of us: for new parents who may welcome help as they adjust to life with an infant, for seniors who can use assistance around the house, for someone who needs a ride to an appointment. Everyone needs help at different times. We would like you to feel free to call Norman Hill, or anyone on the committee and let us know how we can help.

In addition to our regular newsletters, we occasionally send out weekly emails with important announcements and updates. If you would like to sign up to receive these emails, please click here and submit the form.
