Join us for Hamlet's famous fifty-cent lunch at the Atrium at 11:30 am.
Show hours are 10am to 6pm daily.
Hamlet Village will present The River Town Exhibit, works by resident artist Nancy Martt. The exhibit features a mix of local interest landscapes of the Chagrin River and architecture. Nancy is known for her paintings of Whitesburg Park, areas around the Chagrin River, industrial scenes along the Cuyahoga and Cleveland architecture.
Nancy grew up in the Chaco area and graduated from the Chicago Art Institute. She taught art classes at Valley Art Center for many years. Her signature paintings of Chagrin facades are hung in Township Hall, the Cleveland Clinic, and the Federated Church.
Whitesburg Park is featured in this show. It has an interesting history according to Nancy. She says, "Deacon Harvey White purchased the land we call Whitesburg in 1842. He built a spar dam 16 feet high, creating a 50 acre pond. That dam soon collapsed but was replaced by a sound one. He built an ax factory which thrived during westard migration when forests were cleared for farming. Deacon White cleared the rest of his land of trees to make way for other mills taking advantage of the power for the fast flowing Chagrin River. By the end of the century the mills had faded, and forests began recovering. When we moved here in the early fifties, we could take hikes in the tangled area. Later, Chase Bag leased the land to a fish and game club, and a fence kept us out. Deacon White's architecturally splended old home still stood, though hopelessly decayed. The fire department used it for a practice burn. In the early nineties, developers competed for possible purchase of the acreage and pond that was Whitesburg. One August day in 1994 we had six inches of rain in 24 hours and the failing dam gave way. The pond became a mud flat. The developers backed out and the bag factory eventually gave the land to Chagrin Falls for a minimal sum. The Village began the process to turn it into a park with the help of the Chagrin River Land Conservancy."
This exhibit is free and open to the public.
