Art at the Gleason

Annie Downes Catterson, one of the artists whose work is on display at the Gleason Library throughout the summer writes --

"Much of my work has developed out of a special interest in Native American Indian legends and indigenous art forms. Although I work in several different media, my focus has been to a large extent on the woodcut relief print ... Among special projects, I have illustrated three Cree Indian legends which I transcribed from a collection of myths and legends that my father P.G. Downes (1909-1959), a North American Indian ethnologist, compiled in the 1930s."

A CLEAR ROAD AHEAD. Repairs have been completed on North Road, reopening the portion of the road which was closed after heavy rains washed it out last spring. (Photo by Rik Pierce)

AS GOOD AS NEW. The DPW has finished repairing the washout damage on North Road, to the delight of many ice cream lovers. (Photo by Rik Pierce)

It's Fun Friday for Maria Balles as she comes down the slide from the blown-up castle that appears on Fridays in the school gym.
