The Rochester Folk Art Guild attains a milestone accomplishment this year, as the group celebrates 50 years as a vibrant and creative crafts community.
The first seven members to make the move to Middlesex put down roots on East Hill, in 1967. Since that time, hundreds of people have spent time at East Hill Farm, helping it grow and develop into one of the oldest intentional communities in the country.
To mark this year’s milestone, members extend a welcome to all in the local communities to share in a day of celebration, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 4. Tours of the studios and East Hill Gallery are planned.
The Guild’s Ensemble Resonance will perform chamber music of Mozart, Nino Rota and Taylor-Coleridge for flute, bassoon, and piano at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. Free light refreshments will be available.
