The New Year

We had a successful and relatively painless Christmas season this past year. January is proving to be the "usual" and is slow. But that's okay, as we have much to offer for the coming winter and spring months!

Right now is an exhibit with roots in Salem from Victorian times!

Lewis Jesse Bridgman is the artist and he can be looked up on the Net. He was a prominent illustrator in the late 1800's and early 1900's. He died in 1931. He lived in Salem, near Forest River Park and Pioneer Village until his death. His control of pen and ink is astonishing! his watercolor works are equally so!

Stop by to see.

My thanks go to this exhibit to John V. Goff, messiah of Salem Pioneer Village restoration, and Judy Lazdowski, of Antiques at Museum Place Mall.
