Quarry Hill Art Exhibit to Underscore Community Ties

By Quarry Hill | Aug 03, 2012
Quarry Hill resident Ron Smith will display several of his artistic creations at Quarry Hill’s upcoming art exhibit. Smith’s assemblages combine discarded natural and manmade materials he finds during long walks along beaches and other public areas.

Quarry Hill invites the public to attend an exhibition of original arts and crafts by residents and staff, to be held on Friday, August 10, from 2 to 4 pm at the Anderson Inn at Quarry Hill in Camden.

Works on display will range from paintings, sculpture, and photography to collage, 3-D assemblages, needlework, and handcrafted dollhouses.

One of several special events planned in celebration of Quarry Hill’s tenth anniversary, the exhibit will also showcase items representative of the anniversary’s theme, “Building Community.” Included will be items made by Quarry Hill residents for donation to local nonprofit organizations as well as works of art donated to the Quarry Hill community by residents and professional artists.

“Over the years, the arts have not only helped strengthen the bonds between Quarry Hill residents, but also created rich, productive relationships between our organization and the wider community,” commented Quarry Hill executive director Bob McKeown.

The open house will feature live music courtesy of Camden harpist Millie Crocker.

Admission, including refreshments, will be free.
