Art Show at the Mary Jackson House

A letter recently found between two friends became the inspiration for an Art Show that will take place on Sunday, June 22nd.  Mary Jackson, a Charter Member of the Historical Society and Suzanne Haskew, founding Member of the Village Fine Arts spoke of their love of the arts and the importance of having an art cultural center in Milford. 

Milford Historical Society in partnership with the Village Fine Arts will host an art show called Hot Days - Cool Art which will showcase the talent of young local arts from our community.  Mary and Suzanne truly knew the value of the arts and believed in encouraging and supporting the future generations of artists in our community.

Enjoy an entertaining Sunday afternoon at the Mary Jackson house (located at 648 Canal).  Hot Days Cool Art will be on Sunday, June 22, 2014 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $20.00 for Adults, $15.00 for Students, Kids 10 year old and younger are free.  Proceeds from the event will go to the Village Fine Art and the Milford Historical Society.    Music and Refreshments will be offered.   

Tickets are available at the SHAC, the Milford Historical Society Museum, Acorn Farms and Main Street Art. 

Spend an enjoyable afternoon supporting the arts and help us continue the vision of Mary Jackson and Suzanne Haskew.   

For those who don't know who Mary Jackson was, here is a link to her story and the story of the Milford home that she owned and left to the Milford Historical Society. Many readers of this blog may be too young to remember the TV show Walton's Mountain, in which Mary Jackson played one of the Baldwin sisters or may not have seen her in her many film appearances. You can come see her Milford home, to which she returned each year to spend time with childhood friends and enjoy original art, too.
