‘Simple View’ part of weekend events in Antrim

Published: 09-15-2023 10:42 AM

On Saturday, Sept. 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Moka Pot at 42 Main St. will host “A Simple View of Life.”

Local artists and small art businesses in the area will gather to share their wares and workshops. Inspired by the town’s Don Dunlap memorial gazebo located in front of the J.A. Tuttle Library, the event will include paintings, drawings, stained-glass pieces and textiles. A “pop surrealism” artist will be outside sketching the gazebo, and the town will receive a special gazebo artwork as a gift.

On Sept. 16 at 10 a.m. and Sunday, Sept. 17, at 1 p.m., the Antrim Historical Society will be offering a guided stroll around and through South Antrim. Attendees will hear about businesses and citizens who helped develop the southern area of town, including Gov. David Goodell and the mill building. 

The tour will start at “Dodge City” (the parking lot opposite the library) and go down Main Street, Depot Street, Water Street and back. Leader Bill Nichols, chair of the Antrim Historical Society, will talk about the old buildings and businesses, some of which are still around and some of which are gone.

This event is in part of a weekend-long celebration of past graduates of the former Antrim High School.
