The "Games People Play: Sculpture in the Park", is the title of this year's Arts on the Edge exhibition in Town Park, Wolfeboro. Twelve students who created the works were non-art majors enrolled in a General Education course at Plymouth State University. The course, "Public Art: The Politics of Visual Meaning", was designed and taught by Professor Phil Lonergan, the head of the Sculpture program at PSU. The works that students made for the Wolfeboro show were constructed using a wire armature covered in burlap and plaster and then painted. Students worked together to develop an appropriate theme for the town park , they thought about scale and visual impact, and they designed the pieces specifically for the site. The sculpture display is one facet of a summer program, which will also feature a day of poetry with published and award winning Mine poets, Gibson Fay-LeBlanc and Arielle Greenberg, August 19 at the Pinckney Boathouse on the Brewster Academy campus.

BARNSTEAD — The Dedication Service of the Advent Christian Church will be held on Sunday, August 18 at 4 p.m.

The service will be conducted by the Church Pastor, Reverend Charles Willson and the guest speaker will be the Reverend Timothy Willson from Palmer, Nebraska. Music will be furnished by the Maple Street Church Musicians, with a special solo by Peter Gestewitz.

The Advent Christian Church formerly located in Alton Bay, purchased the former Saint Paul’s Catholic church in Center Barnstead on October 15, 2012, and moved into the facility conducting its first service on December 2, 2012. This has been an exciting and rewarding move for this little church to be located in the community of Barnstead. Reverend Charles Willson and his wife Carol have been serving this church since 2005.

082013AshlandOldMan (168)

ASHLAND — Maggie Stier will present a free illustrated program "The Old Man of The Mountain: Substance and Symbol", at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, at the Ashland Railroad Station Museum. The story of the Old Man reflects the story of New Hampshire, in history, the arts, literature, philosophy and public policy.

The iconic landmark has sparked imaginations, attracted intense personal commitments, and symbolized changing public sentiment. Threats to the Old Man led to its protection in the Franconia Notch State Park and the redesign of the Interstate highway through the Notch as the present parkway. The talk will conclude will the fall of the Old Man in 2003 and the ongoing efforts to memorialize the much lamented rock formation.

Audience members are invited to bring souvenirs and memorabilia of the Old Man for display before and after the program and to share their memories of him. This free program is largely funded by the New Hampshire Humanities Council and is sponsored by the Ashland Historical Society. Refreshments will be served.
