Appleton’s Harvest of the Arts
Appleton — Life in rural Appleton is peaceful and serene, providing an environment conducive to all forms of creativity. Once a year, in an 1848 church belonging to the Appleton Historical Society, the residents of the town hold a celebration of local talent. This year’s celebration will be Sunday, Sept. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the church, also known as the Union Meeting House, on Sennebec Road.
Featured will be readings by authors and poets, furniture makers, sculptors, ceramists, painters and musicians all contributing their work and talents to this special event. Light refreshments will be served after the program.
Participants for 2012 include musicians Ellen Tipper, vocalist and pianist; Richard Fisk singing Shubert; Myles Kelley on guitar and piano and Molly Kelley on flute; author Jean Edwards; spinner Penelope Olson; writer Fritz Burke; woodworkers Tim Rousseau and Richard Dunham; sculptor Stephen Gleasner, exhibiting his “Rendition of a Longboard”; and visual artists including Lisa Goodrich, Abbie Read, Priscilla Cross, Dale Tagnoni, Leif Flynn, Jackie Dunham and Jan Janville. The event is free and open to the public.
