Children's Artwork on Display at Hall Memorial Library

NORTHFIELD — On loan from the Fermata Arts Foundation located in Avon, Conneticut, the Nagorno-Karabakh Repbulic Children's Artwork is featured until June 11 in the upper and lower levels of Hall Memorial Library.

This relatively new republic is a landlocked mountain region which seceded from Azerbaijan in 1988. Though there is a rocky truce between Azerbaijan and the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, it is not recognized by the United Nations as an independent state.

The Fermata Arts Foundation's mission is to aid in the preservation of peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation. The model for achieving this is through the synthesis of art, architecture, philosophy and poetry. The Corporation exists to promote and encourage intercultural dialogue between countries, through which the representatives of different countries can discover shared values and spirtual commonality.
