Eric Dowdle is a folk artist who travels the world, spends time in various towns and cities getting to know the people and what’s important to them, and then paints a picture of the town from which he creates posters and puzzles. Eric visited Plymouth in the fall, spending two weeks here with another purpose besides creating a canvas. He also had a film crew with him to create the first episode of a PBS series called (what else?) Painting the Town.
On Friday, May 31st Eric set up in Memorial Hall to unveil his painting of Plymouth and give those of us who attended a chance to preview the half-hour program featuring Plymouth. Those of you who missed it will have to wait until Fall when it’s aired nationally. But you don’t have to wait to purchase a puzzle or poster. These are on sale at First Parish Plymouth tours in Town Square on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10-3.
All sales benefit the restoration of First Parish Meetinghouse.
