Windows to the past
COLCHESTER- The Colchester Historical Society opens its new exhibit featuring miniatures of historic buildings of the town and “Windows to the Past” photos, revealing many of the same buildings in a unique image combination of past and present. This exhibit is the work of two local artisans. Don Standish crafted his replicas in wood to depict the town as it was in the late 1930s. Richard Arsenault uses a technique known as “windows” to link vintage photo with a new digital image. A grand opening for the exhibit will take place at the museum on Dec. 5 at 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the public is invited. The exhibit will remain at the museum at least through January and will be on view every Saturday from 1-4 p.m. at the Colchester Historical Society Museum at Linwood Avenue. Entrance to the museum and this exhibit is free and will be open on Dec. 5 at 6:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 1-4 p.m. on Dec. 8, 15, 29, and jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26. Groups of 6 or more can make an appointment for a special showing.
