Arlington was home for many well-known painters, musicians and writers during the 20th century. Among the most famous was Norman Rockwell. Collectively, Rockwell, Mead Schaeffer, John Atherton, George Hughes and Gene Pelham painted more than 275 Saturday Evening Post covers and illustrations. This exhibit chronicles the work of these artists and the community they created – acting as their own critics and models while becoming close friends. Exhibit dates are June 30 through August 18, 2018 at The Canfield Gallery at the Martha Canfield Memorial Library in Arlington, Vermont.
Outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from all sides to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? When she meets the standoffish, tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy, they clash initially, but is there something deeper behind their animosity? Literature’s greatest tale of manners, society and love has never felt so theatrical or spirited than it does in this effervescent adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic romance from acclaimed writer and actress Kate Hamill. ____________________________________Dorset Theatre Festival: enlightening, entertaining, and inspiring our audience through the celebration of great plays.
