What does it mean to be part of a community? How can we forge meaningful connections
with each other and the place we call home? Using a beautiful, screen-printed tent as a gathering place, artists Elizabeth Jabar and Colleen Kinsella brought artists and community members of all ages together to explore these questions through a series of collaborative workshops and conversations during the summer of 2022. Featuring an array of prints, written works, and portraits, this exhibition represents the individual and collective stories gathered throughout the process and provides a glimpse of the shared hopes, dreams, and ideas for Waterville. Visitors to the exhibition are invited to contribute their own thoughts through a series of interactive prompts.
