Beaver Brook in Hollis to hold Fall Festival and Nature Art Show
Friday, August 22, 2014
HOLLIS – The Beaver Brook Association turned 50 this year, and it’s inviting the public to its 34th annual Fall Festival and Nature Art Show.
Artwork by dozens of regional artists will be on display at Maple Hill Farm. The featured artist is Howard Muscott, of Amherst.
Muscott’s photograph of Mount Monadnock depicts the wonderful vibrancy of fall and all of its glorious colors.
He has photographed landscapes and wildlife for more than 30 years. Grounded in his early years of hiking and backpacking, Muscott’s love for landscape photography is fueled by the exquisite beauty of the natural world and the wildlife residing there.
Muscott, who is self-taught, has had more than 10 individual and 25 group shows highlighting, among other things, fall colors, Southwestern people and light, the mountains of Alaska, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest, and wildlife.

Beaver Brook is accepting artwork for display until Monday, Sept. 22. All rules, details and entry forms can be accessed at www.beaverbrook.org. Visitors will be able to judge the artwork by voting for the People’s Choice Art Award.
There is also a children’s art exhibit in the historic Cooper Shed at Maple Hill Farm, and children of all age groups are encouraged to submit their work. All artwork criteria and presentation details can be found on the website.
The Fall Festival, to be held 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 27-28, is the signature annual event of the Beaver Brook Association.
