We are very excited to announce that an Art Walk has been scheduled for Saturday, May 6th from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at Bartlett Woods to give the community further opportunity to view the beautiful art created by Björn Runquist and Alison Hill that continues to be displayed proudly on our walls.  There will be a walking tour with the artists, followed by a question & answer session and light refreshments prepared by Bartlett Woods own Chef Aaron.

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to our current artists Björn Runquist and Alison Hill for their graciousness in lending us all of these exquisite pieces of art along with the acting Bartlett Woods Curator Pam Cabanas, a noted Friendship artist, with whom none of this would have been possible.

We hope to see you May 6th!

Remember, feel free to visit Bartlett Woods, as the art is always available for viewing daily from 9-5.

Live Art

How lucky we are to have “live art” all around us……



Since the completion of our expansion and renovations in 2012, Bartlett Woods has partnered with local professional artists who are willing to display their visual art throughout our hallways, parlor, dining room and sun room. This collaboration would never have been possible without the guidance from one special person and friend; Pam Cabanas, a noted Friendship artist. Pam, acting as a curator for Bartlett Woods, has brought us reputable and acclaimed artists such as Sam Cady, Katharine Cartwright, Jane Herbert, Jean Kigel, Nat Lewis, Sally Louthridge, Kathleen Mack, Alan Magee, Dennis Pinette, Susan Van Campen, David Vickery, and photographer Jeremy Barnard who have all graced our facility with their wonderful creative works. This shared experience has enriched the lives of residents, families, visitors, and staff alike.

The relationship that I have witnessed between the people who live here and the artists has been one of genuine, mutual appreciation and respect. The art changes every January and it is very exciting around here. We celebrate the hanging of the new art on the last Saturday in February annually.

Currently on exhibit, we have a solo show by Maine painter Ronald Frontin. More than twenty major works by this extraordinary artist have graced our walls for close to a year. Frontin’s work carries on the tradition of American Realism stemming from the early nineteenth century.

If you have not yet come to view Frontin’s work, you still have time! Please stop by anytime between 9-5.
