Art, Food, Drink Unite Town

By Kendra Sardinha, Staff writer

Taunton Gazette photo by MIKE GAY: Richard Correia, of Taunton, pours a taste of wine Sunday as Melissa Martin, of Berkley, looks on inside the Dighton Arts Festival at Araujo's Garden Center.Taunton Gazette photo by MIKE GAY: Richard Correia, of Taunton, pours a taste of wine Sunday as Melissa Martin, of Berkley, looks on inside the Dighton Arts Festival at Araujo's Garden Center.

Dighton — Art, music, food and wine were provided, all guests had to bring to the Dighton Arts Festival Sunday were their senses and an appreciation for community.

For one day, the staff at Araujo’s Garden Center clear away garden tools and plants so five of their greenhouses can accommodate hand-crafted jewelry, photography, hand-crafted wooden furniture, hand-made glassware, paintings and children’s artwork for the event sponsored by the Dighton Lions Club.

Now in its fourth year, the community event created by Bob Mullen and Carl Stonstrom draws hundreds. Mullen said of the 40 vendors participating this year, 21 are returning from last year.

“We’ve fine-tuned the vendors this year, a bit,” said Mullen. “They’re more high end. And, we’re trying to keep it local.”

He said with hotdogs, hamburgers and other foods all $2 at the most, the event wasn’t about making money, but bringing the community together.

Another unique aspect to this particular festival is the attention given to pieces created by students at the Dighton Nursery School, and Dighton and Reboboth elementary and middle schools. “I can see it, I can feel it,” Stonstrom said. “It’s not about the money, but family, culture and kids.”

Michael Troy and Barry Brown, Sam Ruest and MIke Keshura and Johnny Botelho were some of the names that made up the music selections. Locals favorites also included Mia Boostrom, Matt and Sarah Borrello, Kara and Alex Fortier and Maira Ventura.

Outside on the Araujo’s grounds, students from the Dighton Elementary School performed a folk dance demonstration with antique tractors on display next door.
One of the students’ displays was the Dighton Nursey School’s version of a rain forest, named “Spirit of the Rain Forest.”

Teacher Caryle Stonstrom said part of the learning is for the students to create artwork to go with whatever theme they’re learning about. The 8-foot long rainforest creation was created by the 4 and 5-year-olds.

“They learned about the different tiers in a rain forest, the masks worn by different tribes and what types of things live in a rain forest,” Stonstrom said. “It was done as a family, group and individual project.”

Lee Ann Simmons, manager of Araujo’s, wished the event ran for two days. “I love bringing the community together,” she said.

Debbie Simcock and her mother-in-law Theresa came from Swansea to enjoy the day. They come to Araujo’s on a regular basis, but this was their first time attending the art festival.

“I really enjoyed watching the kids square dance out there earlier,” said Debbie. “That is so lost on people now-a-days.”

2008 Dighton Arts Festival Exhibitors

We'd like to welcome the following new and returning exhibitors to this year's Dighton Arts Festival. Be sure to stop by each exhibit and see their art!

George Ferreira

38 Elm Street
Berkley, MA 02779
508-880-3506
Artist's website

George FerrieraI have been working in the powder mediums of charcoal & graphite since 2004. Being a self taught artist, I am constantly experimenting with the application of the charcoal/graphite powder mediums with the tools I use. I have always been drawn to the look and feel of black and white artwork. I consider my works more paintings than drawings. Although traditionally, when you think of charcoal & graphite you don't think painting, but as for my technique, drawing is only a small part of the finished work. Since 2005, my work has been exhibited locally in both juried and non-juried art shows & festivals.


KM Designs by Kyla Mullin is handmade beaded jewelry
All pieces are unique designs crafted with Sterling Silver and Semi Precious Stones. I specialize in Swarovski Crystal & Pearl paired with Bali Silver accents.

Custom designed Mothers Bracelets are created with sterling silver block letters, Swarovski Crystals, and Bali Silver accents to create a unique look.


At JL RibbonGear, you will find all sorts of one-of-a-kind handmade ribbon accessories, from high-end belts, to watches you design yourself, to baby blankets, to hair bows--and everything in between!

Joan Wilding CDA
508-646-0232

I have been painting for over 20 years and have been a member of the Society of Decorative Painting having been a certified decorative artist (CDA) since 1995. I have had the wonderful fortune of having two of my Christmas ornaments chosen to hang in the White House. The first time was for the Clinton administration and the second for the Bush administration and was lucky enough to be invited for a reception at the White House. I have taught at the National level for the SDP and continue to teach local classes. I became involved in jewelry making a short time ago and because of my love of color and creating, it soon became a favorite thing to do. I decided to display my jewelry in the Dighton Arts Festival because I had heard so many good things about the festival.

Michelle McNamara
Artist's Website'

Michelle McNamaraI have been drawing and painting since I was a young girl. I am a graduate of the New England School of Art and Design and for many years ran my own Interior Design business. I am a traditionalist who specializes in painting scenes of the New England landscape. I've studied under various art instructors and, most recently, for the past fifteen years, continued my growth under the watchful eye of Ron Brake, a well-known and respected New England artist and teacher. Watercolors have been my media of choice since the beginning as I believe they reflect more realistically the wonderful hues and tones of New England. My new business (Blueberry Cottage Primitives) combines my love of primitive arts and crafts with my first and truest love - painting. My web store features many primitive decorative items and some of my paintings. I hope you'll stop by and take a look at what I have to offer!
