“Hidden Beauty” – Art by the Friends of the Great Swamp

The board members of Friends of the Great Swamp (FrOGS) and select dedicated volunteers exhibit their photographs, paintings, drawings and quilting that reflect and express the beauty of the Great Swamp.

 

The Great Swamp is one of our most important and beautiful natural resources.  The Friends of the Great Swamp (FrOGS) have been working to protect and promote this ecological wonder since 1990.  The Great Swamp and its surrounding 60,000 acre watershed is home to a diverse array of inspiring waterways, vistas, fields and forests.  “Hidden Beauty” showcases the art work of board members and selected dedicated volunteers that has been inspired by this place that surrounds us.

Artist Displaying are Nancy Clark, John Foley, Justin P. Goodhart, Jean Hanna, Beth Herr, Edie Keasbey, Ken Luhman, Judy Kelley-Moberg, Sharon Nakazato and Julie Toscano.

About The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition

The Town of Southeast Cultural Arts Coalition is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining cultural arts within the Town of Southeast and its surrounding region. TOSCAC was established as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in August 2010 with the purpose, as detailed in the incorporation papers, “… to promote and raise funds for the development and effective management of affordable, accessible performance space that will provide citizens of the Town of Southeast opportunities to participate in and appreciate cultural arts, including lectures, theater, dance, film, music, visual arts, and inclusive community events.”  Our current focus is the renovation of the Southeast Old Town Hall, a historic landmark within the Village of Brewster and a perfect venue to serve as a cultural hub. The Old Town Hall has been described as a “Jewel in the Center of Brewster” and its renovation will help foster the revitalization of downtown Brewster.
