Artwork at the Dismas Family Farm


With the winter season in full swing at the Dismas Family Farm, residents are exploring their artistic sides. In the past, the wood shop produced excellent items such as the Adirondack chairs, birdhouses, bathouses, and Christmas ornaments. This year residents are branching out with artistic projects of their own design. One such man in the community creates framed three-dimensional pictures. Another constructs hanging plant holders made of wooden polyominoes as well as an art deco style clock.
