Ruth Stimson "Art" Notecards now available
The Friends are excited to announce the sale of the first set of Ruth Stimson "Art" Notecards. Ruth Stimson is fondly remembered by many in Hampton as a true "Renaissance Woman." She was a talented artist, passionate
environmentalist, educator, community leader, library supporter, and expert
gardener. As a Hampton resident, she served in several capacities for the Lane
Memorial Library. She was a member of several organizations including the
Hampton Garden Club and Historical Society. After her death, her artwork was
given to the Lane Memorial Library and sold at a silent auction. Several pieces
have been selected and reproduced as note cards. It is very fitting that these
fine reproductions of her artwork will serve as a fundraiser for the Friends of
the Lane Memorial Library. See this flyer for pictures of the art work used. They can be purchased at the library and at the Tuck Museum in Hampton for $10 per set of five notecards. We are honored and excited to be able to make her work available for all to enjoy.
