Art Show

Every year in March, the little town of Monson, MA has an Art Show.  Local artists submit works.  There are paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs and mixed media works.  Accepted works are displayed at the Monson Art Center on 200 Main St in Monson, MA from March 29 -April 13.  Weekends only.  It is a very well attended event.

And what does this have to do with Brookwood Shire?  Well, while I am very busy with my gardens and my girls, Bill is not.  He will help at times, but he is not fond of digging in the dirt.  And while he enjoys their eggs, he fails to really appreciate the charms of my delightful girls.   He is a photographer.  And every year he submits a few photos to the Monson Art Show.

And this year, I am proud to announce, he won first prize for photography!  Very exciting!  


This is the photo that won.  It is called Corn Husk. 

There are many other lovely works to see if you are able to attend.

If you can’t get there they also have a website with a gallery of some of the work.  Though of course it is better in person.

In any case, we are very excited about this.  If you want to see more of Bill’s work you can go to his website.  There are no pictures of chickens….but you might find something you like.
