Venue: Canajoharie Library at ARKELL Museum site, 2 Erie Boulevard, Canajoharie, NY 13317
This display features 10 original paintings of landscapes and buildings near the Village of Canajoharie and a biography of Betty Pieper's links to the community from her childhood. Two paintings feature the historic West Hill School, now shuttered, and several include people bathing in the creek and enjoying the gorge forming Wintergreen Flats. One depicts the falls as the creek descends to form the Boiling Pot downstream on its way through the town and into the Mohawk River. Another painting illustrates how Susan B. Anthony, later a famous suffragette, might have looked teaching in an old fashioned classroom of young women in Canajoharie over a century ago. Betty Pieper became a painter of life environments and experiences and was greatly influenced by the world class works from the ARKELL collection as she did her homework in the library as a preteen years ago. Proceeds from the works go entirely to the library/ARKELL.
