Bethe Historical Society hosting annual art show


BETHEL — The 31st annual Faye Taylor Memorial Art Show, sponsored by the Bethel Historical Society, will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 29, at the Dr. Moses Mason House Exhibit Hall.

This year’s theme will be “Winter Sports,” which will highlight the society’s new exhibit celebrating the history of skiing in the Bethel area. Students from SAD 44 in grades one to six are invited to create artwork showing people participating in various winter activities such as skiing, sledding, skating or snowshoeing through the years.

All entries in any medium should be finished, be no larger than 12 by 18 inches and have no writing (except as part of a sign) on the front side. They should be delivered to the exhibit hall by 3 p.m., Friday, May 28, in order to be considered for a prize. On Saturday, at least three judges will look at all entries to determine how they relate to this year’s theme and choose the winners.

Ribbons, certificates and cash prizes will be awarded to the winners in three divisions. All entries must include on the back side the student’s full name, home telephone number, teacher’s name, grade level and school.

The show honors the memory of Faye Sanborn Taylor (1908 to 1972), a local landscape painter, who was very interested in encouraging the creative talents of young people. She was a charter member of the Bethel Historical Society.
