Maine Sunday Telegram Features Maine Traditional Arts

A feature article, written by noted arts journalist Bob Keyes, appeared in this weekend’s (December 13, 2009) Maine Sunday Telegram highlighting one of the Maine Arts Commission’s 2010 Traditional Arts Masters.

Susan Barrett Merrill, a sixth-generation weaver and spinner, is one of five artists who will teach an apprentice their traditional art in the coming 12 months.

This must-read article provides a great deal of insight into the scope of the Maine Arts Commission’s Traditional Arts program. It also underscores the value of traditional artists within the state of Maine.
