Every turn of the season artists gather at the Cataumet Arts Center to enjoy friendship, share food and share their work.  The community flows with each season.  You never know who will show up or what you will eat, but you know that both will be good.  And you know that you will find a sympathetic ear for what you want to say about your work and your hopes for it and your struggles with it.

These evenings would not happen without the  vision and endurance of Andrea York, who has found an extraordinary way to combine her home with two community gathering places - the post office and an arts center.  

Artists sharing their work last night included Jean Adelman, William Adelman, Alfred Glover,  Francis Hersey, Georgianna Holmes, Torben Lorenzen, Robert Manz, Lola Mello, Shirley Mossman Nisbet, Bill Noble, Claudin Poyant, Russ Saunders and others.   One artist's work is featured in most of these pictures; there are three beautiful water color and casein paintings on the wall behind most of the presenters -- these are the work of Priscilla Levesque.  Many thanks to Toby and April for organizing communications to gather the solstice group last night. 

Here are a few images of this community Saturday night as we come to the the Winter Solstice.
