Almost 80 artists in Hollis; artists donate labor to CareGivers
By Heidi Masek hmasek@hippopress.com

• Whole lot of fine art: The Hollis Fine Art Festival is scheduled to make quite a debut Saturday, Oct. 14, with almost 80 artists showing at the first annual open-invite festival at Nichols Field, 40 Depot Road, Hollis, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Artists who hail from throughout New England, including beginner through professional level, will show only two-dimensional work. Steve Previte, a painter who has lived in Hollis for 30 years and teaches painting in his Nashua studio, is the organizer. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 15.

• “Hands Full of Love”: Arts can bring peace and comfort to those nearing the end of life, according to the Concord Regional Visiting Nurses Association Hospice Program. They will hold a free open house at Concord’s Unitarian Universalist Church, 274 Pleasant St., on Saturday, Oct. 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to provide practical guidance for those who are ill, family members, hospice volunteers and others. “The arts help people to live fully even as they are dying,” says Bevan Tulk, spiritual care coordinator for the hospice program. The NH Charitable Foundation funded forums on incorporating the arts in spiritual care at the end of life, and a training program.

Proceeds benefit CareGivers, an organization that helps frail, elderly and disabled people maintain independence. Buy tickets for $15 at the door or call (877) 394-5192.
