Corina Willette: “Our” Artist Goes to School By Barbara Neville Wilson If you had taken the traditional “Back to School” photo of a grinning Corina Willette on her first day of class last month, she might have been carrying the requisite box—but it would be a paint box. She may have been showing off new pencils—but they would be colored pencils. She was probably wearing new shoes—stylish walking shoes to carry her both on the paths of SUNY New Paltz, New York state’s flagship college for the visual arts, and along Manhattan’s West 57th Street where Galerie St. Etienne is located. In higher education parlance, Corina is a “non-traditional” learner. She is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts as a 40-something year old and looks forward to complementing her natural talent, life experience and first nontraditional degree from the New Hampshire Institute of Art with lessons learned from renowned professors and a cohort of fellow students immersed in a variety of media; and on-theground, hands-on experience at the globally resonant Galerie St. Etienne. A 27-year resident of the Lakes Region who lived in a small town in Vermont for 19 years before that, Corina is like most students entering new schools: filled with equal parts excitement and courage, boldness and trepidation. She wants to take advantage of every educational and artistic opportunity offered yet admits that when confronted with the 95-degree heat of a commuter train, she really misses New Hampshire’s

cool air. Perhaps you already know Corina’s work… “Oh yes,” you say confidently. “I love her little paintings displayed front row at The Art Place in Wolfeboro, the little animals on unexpected backgrounds. She is a watercolorist.” “Watercolorist? Oh no. I think her real love is oil,” a friend might reply. “Did you see her study of four women at The Kalled Gallery a few


months back? All given the same piece of fabric, each styled it differently with only their body as canvas. She’s definitely a serious introspective oil painter.” “But her multi-media work…?” your shy friend interjects. “What about the pieces on Barbara Gibbs’ outer wall? That gossamer. The gold leaf. The wallpaper-like patterns. Surely she’s talking through the layers…” It is precisely the variety in Corina’s

work that makes Barbara Gibbs, owner of The Art Place and Corina’s former employer, shake her head and smile with respect. “She’s an interesting artist. Her little paintings of animals have a lot more to them than you first see…she uses different media [like gold leaf and textiles], and the patterns behind them make you wonder… there’s a lot going on in them. She’ll work on these little ones and then she’ll work on those big canvases. Life drawings. They’re oil, but she doesn’t apply it heavily. It’s almost like she uses the brush like a pencil.” In the seven years Corina worked at Barbara’s gallery, she played many roles: she worked behind the scenes; she framed; she did retail in the shop, and Barbara watched her grow. She “did everything great up front,” Barbara says, but through the years, the artist has also continued to develop more fully. Her “sense of humor has come out” and she’s been “reaching out and finding herself. I’m proud of her for taking on this new adventure,” but it’s just one of many adventures. As an artist, Corina has refused to stand still. Look at the roster of artists receiving support from the Governor Wentworth Arts Council, an organization dedicated to local arts education, celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018. Since 2007, Corina has received four of its scholarships to take classes, do workshops, and pursue her first Fine • Corina Continued on page 4

Humanities To Go Offers Free “Brewing in New Hampshire” Lecture According to a 2018 study, the Granite State consumes more beer per capita than any other state in the nation… but where did it all start? Find out at a NH Humanities sponsored lecture at Castle in the Clouds in Moultonborough. “Brewing in New Hampshire” explains the long history of brewing beer in the Granite State. The free Humanities To Go lecture by author and historian, Glenn A. Knoblock, will discuss this and more on Wednesday, September 12 at 7 pm. Knoblock has written 15 books and more than 100 articles relating to New England history. He is known for his “Images of America” series and varies his focus from landmarks such as burial grounds, covered bridges, weathervanes, and cemeteries, to African-American military history and natural formations like lakes and ponds. Published in 2004, his book “Brewing in New Hampshire” is the foundation for one of the six lecture programs Knoblock offers through Humanities To Go. Knoblock starts this history from the beginning, during the time of home and tavern-based brewing in the Colonial era. He includes the faces behind the early beer and ale industry,

sharing details of the state’s original brewers and the first woman-owned brewery. The underdogs are not forgotten, as the lecture also uncovers lesser-known breweries and how these historic efforts have brought us to present-day, where the craft-brewing business is booming all across the Granite State. This program is free to the public, courtesy of a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities To Go program. It will be held upstairs in The Carriage House’s Winnipesaukee Room and can be accessed via the Castle in the Clouds 586 Ossipee Park Road entrance. New Hampshire Humanities is an organization focused on connecting people to culture, history, places, ideas, and one another. Castle in the Clouds is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, whose mission is to preserve, interpret, and share the historic Lucknow Estate. Each visit supports this mission and helps to ensure the enjoyment and enrichment of generations to come. For more information call 603-476-5900 or visit

• Corina Continued from page 3 Arts degree. For Barbara, an artist’s continuing education shows they’re open, they want to keep expanding. “Whether a workshop or a formal process…any kind of education or hands-on [training]…solidifies you as an artist. It shows you haven’t closed yourself off, that you’re willing to learn…and that’s Corina’s personality. She wants it all. She’s doing it all. She’s very open.” Corina credits the Arts Council and Barbara for helping her grow. It’s not easy to pursue art, make a living, and carve out time to continue to develop as an artist. “I don’t know many jobs that can be so supportive” as The Art Place, she says. She points to the flexibility Barbara allowed in her work schedule so she also could work at Galerie St Etienne, on tony West 57th Street in Manhattan, six to eight weeks a year. There she handles art, does registry work, fixes frames and—you can almost hear a breathless giggle in her voice—basks in the presence of gallery owners Jane Kallir and Hildegard Bachert, serious academics on the world scene of Austrian and German Expressionism. It’s truly a situation where it’s the “back woods mouse goes to the big city,” Corina says. Applying for the job after graduating from the New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2011 was a genuine leap from her comfort zone, but having just left school, she saw a desert before her. “I pursued it because I was desperate for more education, more background…plus…” —again, you hear that little giggle— ”New York City is so interesting.”

For the next two years Corina will call New Paltz, NY, home base. With a cohort of 20 or more fellow graduate students, she will explore her art in new ways. While she goes into the program describing herself as an illustrative artist engaged in figurative realism, she knows she will be sharpened and challenged by the other artists around her, only a portion of whom are equally engaged in creating art that “sees the world and tries to represent it as they see it” in (generally) two dimensions. She expects that little time will pass before her art starts to bear witness to the influence of the fine printmakers, photographers, ceramicists and sculptors also enrolled in the MFA program. Corina finds she is more creative when surrounded by other artists. When she first entered the New Hampshire Institute of Art, she says, “I felt like I was in my true soul community for the first time.” Now like a little kid standing on the doorstep for the annual “First Day of School” photo, she is excited by all the fresh opportunity offered at SUNY New Paltz and in the New York metropolitan area. She mentions how happy she is to be in this phase of life when her children are launched and she has more time before her. Women today are lucky, she says. “I think the world is newly open [to us] through opportunities like this. It shows we’re not passé.” See Corina Willette’s paintings in a variety of media at The Art Place at 9 North Main Street in Wolfeboro and follow the artist’s journey on Instagram at corinajwil.

SLA to Host Fall Hiking Meet Ups in Support of Squam Trail Network Fall is the perfect time to get out and hike in the Squam Watershed. Located on the southern edge of the White Mountain National Forest, this 50+ mile trail network is managed by the Squam Lakes Association (SLA) and contains a variety of summits with outstanding views of Squam Lake and surrounding high peaks. Throughout the months of September and October, the SLA is offering meet-up hikes scheduled each week. There is no cost to attend these hikes which are not intended to be guided. This allows participants to hike at their own pace and go as far down the trail as they wish. This is the perfect opportunity to meet other folks interested in hiking, enjoy a day out on the trail, and to learn more about the SLA trails. The September hikes include Cotton Mountain-Mt. Livermore Loop, Butterworth-Col Trail Loop, Belknap Woods, Doublehead Mountain, and Eagle Cliff Trail. All of the hikes are part of SLA’s Squam Ranger check list, a program that supports the management of the beloved trails. Since 2012, 180 people have joined the

Squam Ranger program for $50 for 50 miles, and 32 people have completed all 50 miles. With 25,000 to 30,000 annual hikers on Rattlesnakes’ Old Bridle Trail alone, maintenance is a daunting task. The SLA performs over 2,500 hours of trail construction and maintenance each year, and the $50 initiation fee helps offset the cost of maintaining the trails.

benefit the natural beauty, peaceful character and resources of the watershed. In collaboration with local and state partners, the SLA promotes the protection, careful use and shared enjoyment of the lakes, mountains, forests, open spaces and wildlife of the Squam Lakes Region. For more information, visit www.squamlakes. org or call 603-968-7336.

By joining the Squam Rangers program you receive a hiking t-shirt, back pack, Squam Trail Guide, Squam Wildlife Guide, and Trail Log. Upon completion of hiking all 26 trails, you receive a Squam Ranger baseball cap, a Squam Ranger patch, and Squam Ranger Completion Certificate. The Squam Lakes Association is dedicated to conserving for public

Weber and Corina Willette. The show includes art in a variety of mediums, focusing on themes of shadow and light. Shadow and light are invaluable in art; both help the eye distinguish forms, space and distance. Shadow and light are experienced in many ways, including the physical interactions perceived by the eye through light and in shadows cast and attached, by light, which is the result of natural effects or artificial light sources. Color interacts with light as a byproduct of the amount of reflected light on a particular object. Interpretations of shadow and light also fall into the realm of the symbolic,

religious, metaphysical, emotional and the abstract, experienced in unlimited ways during our daily lives. The public is welcome to attend the opening reception on September 14;

the Art Place is located at 9 North Main Street in Wolfeboro, NH. Call 603-569569-6159 or visit www.theartplace. bizz.

rd Wolfeboro Friends of Music Opens 83 Season with Jonathan Edwards Your Where-To-Go, What-To-Do Guide The Wolfeboro Friends of Music will open its 83rd season with singer/ guitarist Jonathan Edwards on Saturday, September 22. The concert will take place at Brewster’s Anderson Hall at 7:30 pm and is sponsored by J. Clifton Avery Insurance, Taylor Community, the Law Offices of V. Richards, Ward, Jr. PLLC and Debbie and Paul Zimmerman. Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends, such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into

stellar career of uncompromising Region Lakes forathe

musical integrity, Jonathan simply delivers, night after night—songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age. This is one veteran performer who is neither grizzled nor nostalgic. These days Jonathan is likely to be found on the road. “I’ve been…doing what I do best, which is playing live in front of people. I’ve been concentrating on that and loving it,” he says.

An artist who measures his success by his ability to attract and take good care of an audience for four decades, Jonathan maintains that it is the feedback he receives after his shows that keeps him going. “It is really gratifying to hear [someone say], ‘Your stuff has meant a lot to me over the years.’ ” The “stuff” he’s referring to is a highly respected repertoire that includes such classics as “Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy,” “Sometimes,” “One Day Closer,” “Don’t Cry Blue,” “Emma,” “Everybody Knows Her,” “Athens County,” and everyone’s favorite ode to putting a buzz on, “Shanty.” And then, of course, there’s the anthemic “Sunshine (Go Away Today),” that fierce proclamation of protest and independence that resonated with thousands and thousands of young men and women when it was first released in 1971. Almost 40 years later, at show after show, the song continues to be embraced by faithful followers and new fans alike. Since 1971, Edwards has released over 15 albums, including “Blue Ridge”, his standard-setting collaboration with bluegrass favorites The Seldom Seen, and Little Hands, his collection of children’s songs, which was honored with a National Library award. As for his 16th album, Jonathan said, “Young people that are getting back to the land and trying to get off the power grid encourage me. [This album] will

reflect some of those themes.” With that in mind, it’s no surprise that he closes each night’s show with these heartfelt lyrics: “Calling all dreamers and optimistic fools Don’t let go of your dream, make it now, make it all come true If you believe in a brighter day I know we can find our way To this island, in a starry ocean Poetry in motion, this island earth A beautiful oasis for all human races The only home we know, this island earth” This is a concert you simply don’t want to miss. Whether you were there in the turbulent times of the 1960’s and 1970’s or you are now a music fan, Jonathan Edwards songs and his voice will bring back hope. This will be the first of eight programs presented by the Wolfeboro Friends of Music to people of the greater Lakes Region during its season, which runs from September through May. Tickets are available for $25 at the door or at Black’s Paper Store and Avery Insurance in Wolfeboro, at Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith, by calling 603-569-2151, or by visiting Please note, WFOM’s special policy: high school students with ID will be admitted free of charge, and a child accompanied by an adult ticket purchaser will be admitted free of charge.

East Meets West for Epic Rock ’n Blues Ana Popovic, Magic Dick of the J. Geils Band, and 2015 Boston Music Award Winner Shun Ng will perform in a show at the Flying Monkey Performance Center in Plymouth on Friday, September 21 at 7:30 pm. Magic Dick, the harmonica player for Boston’s legendary J. Geils Band, has recently teamed up with 2015 Boston Music Award winning guitar and vocal sensation, Shun Ng, to create one of the most dynamic musical acts to come out of Boston in a long time. Their music is a soulful blues that rocks out and yet is thoughtful, emotional and performed by virtuosos on their respective instruments. Since 1969, Magic Dick has toured the world playing stadiums with the J. Geils Band. He explains the formation of the duo, “From the moment I first heard Shun Ng’s CD ‘Funky Thumb Stuff’ I knew that a manifest musical collaboration was about to happen. Shun’s sound simply made me feel very alive and induced in me a synchronous alignment of musical DNA as if it was his intention, as well as mine, all along… now we are a duo and I couldn’t be more delighted.” Quincy Jones says of the Singapore native, “When you see Shun Ng, you won’t believe your eyes nor your ears – he belies all stereotypes, all premonitions. I was simply blown away by both his soul and his science

– his creativity and his uniqueness is astounding.” If that wasn’t enough, the evening will continue with the fearless Ana Popovic and her red-hot band. The Serbian born Ana Popovic has never played by the rules. Being told from a young age that she could never sing in English and that she would never make it in the United States, she has proven everyone wrong, and has become one of the most respected blues and rock guitarists on the scene. It’s clear to see why she was invited to join the blues heavyweights on the Experience Hendrix tour. This past year, Ana traveled to Nashville, Tennessee to record her ninth studio album, ‘Like It On Top’,

Chillin’ While Grillin’ Grilled Vegetables By Chef Kelly Ross I’m always ready to grill, regardless what the protein, vegetable, or fruit may be since everyone knows grilled food is the best! Any cookout is a good cookout as far as I’m concerned. Short of starting a fire, you can’t lose with grilled food. Although I am disappointed whenever I overcook anything, I would rather have an overcooked burger or steak from the grill than one cooked in a kitchen in a cast-iron pan. Although the mention of a steak may have gotten diehard carnivore’s mouths’ watering, today’s theme is geared toward the vegetarian

crowd and different grilled veggie ideas, whether as an appetizer, main course or side dish. We’ll talk mushrooms, eggplant, asparagus, zucchini, summer squash, peppers and onions, and even a grilled potato skin recipe. All are fun, easy, and deliciously simple. When it comes to cooking, grilling and eating, there’s nothing better than the combination of simple and delicious. Here is the list of today’s recipes: Marinated Portabella and Button Mushrooms Potato Skins Creamy Grilled Potato Salad

Grilled Vegetable Stack (sometimes referred to as Ratatouille) Parmesan Asparagus Spears Four simple and delicious Eggplant Side Dishes/Entrees For starters, let’s do a grilled “take off” of a staple on the appetizer menu in many restaurants and taverns: potato skins. Like most of these recipes, it’s very simple. This recipe yields 16 individual potato skin wedges. The List 4 large baking potatoes ¼ cup of butter, melted 4 tsp of fresh minced rosemary 1 tsp salt 1 tsp black pepper 2-3 cups of your favorite shredded cheese. I prefer a combo of sharp cheddar/pepper jack 4 scallions, chopped 10 strips of chopped cooked bacon, optional Sour cream, optional The first cooking step is in the microwave, or if preferred, you could bake the potatoes the day before. If using the microwave, cut each potato lengthwise into 4 wedges. With a paring knife, cut away most of the white part of the potato, leaving about ¼ inch of the meat of the spud. Microwave the

wedges until tender, generally for 10 minutes or so, maybe more depending on the size of the potato and the strength of the microwave. Once cool enough to handle, brush them on all sides with the melted butter combined with the rosemary, salt and pepper. On a medium- to medium-high heated grill, place the potatoes on the grill, skin side up for 3-4 minutes until the white is lightly browned. Turn them over and let cook for 2-3 more minutes to crisp the skin. At this point, turn off one side of the grill, and put a pan down on that side of the grill and place the spuds on the pan, skin side down. Top with cheese, scallions and bacon if using and close the lid of the grill to let things melt. Serve with sour cream and enjoy. I like these so much better than the usual ones that we see in a restaurant because these aren’t fried and as a result, they aren’t greasy. Like many proteins, sometimes a simple marinade is all you need to turn a basic vegetable into something amazingly delicious. This will be the main principle when we grill the

September 10, 2018 • Chillin’ Continued on page 20 eggplant as a side dish a little later, and it is now as we grill some mushrooms as an appetizer. Whether it be a button, shitake, portabella or any other fungi, a good marinade is helpful in a few ways. For starters, there is no fat content in the ’shrooms, which means in and of itself, they will create no flame on the grill. We need the flame to create the classic grill flavor we crave. Also, like with anything, a marinade creates seasoning and its own distinct additional flavor. There are scores of different marinades, but as a rule, simple is best as far as I’m concerned. Regardless what your favorite variety of mushroom, here are some of the best basic marinades. Pop your favorite mushroom into any of these or any oilbased marinade for an hour or 2 and grill cup side up with extra marinade in the cup. Let the backside grill for 3-4 minutes and flip them over. Be careful because the extra marinade may create a quick-fire flash when it hits the fire. These are my favorite mushroom marinades: Balsamic Vinegar, Olive Oil, Garlic and your favorite herbs Red Wine, Olive Oil, Garlic, and chopped fresh Basil Olive Oil, Garlic, fresh chopped Basil, Oregano and Thyme, Salt and Pepper Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil, Honey, Garlic Simply, you can use a favorite bottled Italian Dressing or any seasoned vinaigrette For an added ingredient, flip the mushroom again so it is cup side up and toss in some crumble bleu, feta, goat, parmesan or any other cheese you enjoy, close the lid and turn off the heat to let the cheese melt. One food that everyone has tried, and most have made, is potato salad. It is truly an American staple at family reunions or picnics. There are varied recipes giving different flavors, but

Page 21 no one seems to make ne with grilled potatoes. As I have said, everything tastes better when grilled, so why not spuds in the spud salad, right? The flavor of the grill will make the recipe unforgettable and very popular with your crowd. Even if you don’t grill the potatoes—although you should give it a try—you will want to give this Creamy Grilled Potato Salad a try. This recipe will get you a good 12 servings. Creamy Grilled Potato Salad 4 lbs. red potatoes, cut into 1-inch slices ¼ cup olive oil 1 tsp granulated garlic ½ tsp black pepper ½ tsp paprika 2 cups of mayonnaise 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped 2 dill pickles, chopped ½ sweet onion, diced 2 stalks celery, finely chopped ¼ cup pickle juice 3 tsp celery seed salt and pepper to season 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard Mix the oil, granulated garlic, pepper, and paprika in a large bowl. Toss in the sliced potatoes and toss well with a spoon until well coated. On a greased, medium heated grill, place the spuds down and close the grill cover. Cook for close to ½ hour, until somewhat tender but not so done that they crumble, turning only once halfway through the process. Let them cool, and then cut each piece into quarters, giving you 4 triangles of sorts from each slice. In a large bowl, mix the mayo, pickle juice, chopped pickles, celery, onion, celery seed, Dijon, salt and pepper, and the chopped eggs. Toss in all the cooled, cooked, cut potatoes and combine gently so as to not bust up the potatoes. Cover and refrigerate until serving. So we have talked about a couple of appetizers and a salad, all utilizing grilled veggies, so now let’s move to a dinner entree and then a couple of side dishes that will go with dinner. This first one is my all-time favorite vegetarian dish to make for

vegetarians as the flavor is awesome, and the presentation is phenomenal. It will “wow” the crowd every time. You can use an array of vegetables, but the usual list includes eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, a variety of colored bell peppers, and red onions, among others. Slice the vegetables into circles, marinate them, grill them, and stack the cooked slices with the widest on the bottom to the narrowest at the top, drizzle a balsamic glaze over it and top with a leaf or 2 of fresh basil. Considering the size of the veggies, it’s tough to make this for one person. This recipe should make four beautiful stacks. As a general rule, slice the veggies the same thickness, about ½ inch. Depending on your taste, eliminate a veggie or two and double up on others. If feeling even more creative, buy some fresh mozzarella and pop a couple of slices here and there in between the warm-hot veggie slices. The List 1 medium-large eggplant 3-4 large beefsteak tomatoes 2 orange bell peppers 1 yellow bell pepper 1 large red onion

1 medium zucchini and/or 1 medium summer squash 2-3 loaves of fresh mozzarella (optional) To Baste 3/8 cup olive oil 1 tsp fresh garlic ¼ tsp oregano ¼ tsp basil Salt & pepper ¼ cup red wine vinegar Garnish Balsamic glaze, which you can find in any supermarket ½ cup of fresh basil leaves, stacked, rolled tightly, cut crosswise into ribbons This is so simple and yet so elegant. Combine the sauce ingredients and whisk well. Preheat the grill to medium high heat. All the veggies should be put on a small pan or two, then brush the sauce/marinade over one side of all and pop them on the heat, sauced side down. Cook for 3-5 minutes, flip, and brush more onto the other side. Close the lid at times if needed. Eggplant usually takes a minute or two longer than the rest but check them all regularly. Once

• Chillin’ Continued from page 21 done, arrange an eggplant slice in the middle of the plate on a small puddle of the glaze. Continue to stack the veggies into a tower with the smallest items tapering toward the top but keep it manageable so it doesn’t fall; 2-3 inches is perfect. Drizzle the glaze lightly over the top and sides and top with the shredded basil. Just like a beautiful cake, at first you won’t want to cut into it, but eventually you will break down and dive in. I know many people who live on side dishes, which I do once a year on Thanksgiving. I’ll make turkey sandwiches for a few days and love them, but I usually chow down on the fun traditional side dishes on Turkey Day. Side dishes can make a great dinner sometimes, and here is a great grilled veggie that I could, in abundance: Grilled Parmesan Asparagus. I am not a fan of steamed vegetables, but throw

them on the grill, and I fall in love with them. Asparagus is right near the top of my grilled veggie list. Again, this is as simple as you can possibly imagine, which makes it a double winner as far as I’m concerned. Grilled Parmesan Asparagus The List 1 lb. of asparagus 2 Tbsp olive oil a few good shakes of dry oregano and basil 3 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese 2 cloves garlic, minced salt and pepper Trim up the bottoms of the asparagus and lay them on a small sheet pan, single layered. Combine the oil and spices and mix well and pour over the asparagus and roll the spears so they are completely coated.

September 10, 2018 • Chillin’ Continued from page 22 fire flare up as you pop them on. Grill for 7-8 minutes, rolling occasionally until they become tender and have some char from the grill’s heat. Put the asparagus back on the pan, sprinkle with the minced garlic, parmesan, and a little more salt and pepper and put the pan on the grill, close the lid, turn off the heat and let sit for a minute or two to let the cheese melt somewhat into the asparagus, pull off with oven mitts, and serve. This is a five-star resort type of veggie and you are guaranteed to dig them big time! Today we end with a few great eggplant side dish recipes, although a couple can easily work as an entrée. Eggplant is a very versatile veggie and combines well with many marinades. Like the early recipes regarding mushrooms, it’s often all about the marinade, plus you can add a few great toppings to them, which makes them potential dinner entrees. Greek Eggplant, topped with diced tomatoes, chopped artichokes, olives and feta cheese, or an Eggplant Parmesan, topped with sliced tomato and fresh mozzarella and basil are great examples. Let’s start with a basic recipe or two for a side dish. Spicy Cajun Eggplant The List 2 small eggplants, sliced into ½ inch slices ¼ cup olive oil 2 tbsp fresh lime juice a dash or 2 of your favorite hot or sriracha sauce 3 tsp Cajun seasoning Combine all ingredients, other than the eggplant. Put the eggplant slices on a pan and brush the marinade over all sides of them and let them sit for 5 minutes. Cook the eggplant on a medium heat on a covered grill for 4 minutes or so on each side. These go great with pasta or any grilled meat. Off to the next option.

Page 23 The List for a Balsamic Eggplant 2 small eggplant, cut into ½ inch slices 3-4 Tbsp olive oil 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 pinch each of fresh or dried oregano, basil, thyme, and dill As in the last recipe, mix all the ingredients other than the eggplant, and lay the eggplant on a pan and brush the marinade over both sides of the eggplant. Grill on a medium heat, covered, for about four minutes on each side while continuing to brush on the marinade on both sides. This is another great simple recipe where you can easily adjust the spices/herbs if wanted. Now, on to the last two eggplant recipes, one is a simple twist on a classic Italian dish, and the last is my favorite of the bunch. Grilled Eggplant Parmesan The List 2 small-medium eggplants, cut into ½ inch slices ¼ cup olive oil ½ tsp each of oregano, basil, granulated garlic 2 cloves garlic, minced 3 tbsp parmesan cheese 2-3 large beefsteak tomatoes, sliced ¼ inch 12 +/- slices of fresh mozzarella, ¼-½ inch slices 12 +/- fresh basil leaves 2-3 tbsp balsamic glaze (optional) Combine the oil, oregano, basil, and granulated garlic. Brush the marinade over one side of the eggplant slices and tomato slices and pop them on a medium-high heated grill, brushed side down. As they are grilling, brush marinade over the top sides. After about four minutes, flip the eggplant/ tomato slices, brush again, and sprinkle the garlic and parmesan over the top of the grilled sides of eggplant. Place on a tomato slice or two, depending on the size of the eggplant pieces, then a slice of mozzarella over the tomatoes, close

the grill lid, and cook for two to three minutes. Check them. If the cheese is sufficiently melted, continue grilling with the lid up until the eggplant is cooked, usually no more than a total of eight to ten minutes. When done, top each piece with a fresh basil leaf and drizzle balsamic glaze over the top if preferred.Last on the list is an awesome Greek Eggplant recipe that is truly an original, as opposed to the Eggplant Parm, although still pretty darn good. The marinade and process has similarities to the previous, only the toppings are different, but if you enjoy a good Greek salad or pizza, you’re going to love this dish. For this one, I like to cut the eggplant lengthwise to have more of an area to sprinkle the small topping on, but if you prefer the circle slices, that’s fine. Greek Eggplant The List 2 medium eggplants, cut into ¾ inch slices, lengthwise ¼ cup olive oil ¼ tsp black pepper ¼ tsp salt ¼ cup balsamic glaze ½ cup feta cheese

¾ cup rough cut canned artichoke hearts ½ cup sliced black olives 1 tsp chopped fresh oregano ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes Put the long slices of eggplant on a pan and brush one side of each slice and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put the seasoned sides down on a medium/ medium-high heated grill and cook for 2-3 minutes, brushing with oil and sprinkling more salt and pepper over the tops. Flip them, then drizzle with the balsamic glaze and scatter the olives, feta, artichoke hearts, and sprinkle with oregano and red pepper flakes, close the cover and cook for 3-4 more minutes until the eggplant is firm. Carefully, and maybe with two spatulas, remove the cooked eggplant slices and serve with pride. I hope this trip down vegetarian lane is something that excites your inner grilling genes. I know I’m a diehard carnivore, but grilled veggies done like these truly make me smile. If you have any questions or feedback, touch base at fenwaysox10@

Yester year Back to School: the Lakes Region’s Schoolhouses By Kathi Caldwell-Hopper If you wish to see a real one-room schoolhouse and to experience what education was like long ago, there are many examples in New Hampshire. In the village of Andover, there were once a number of small schoolhouses, each serving a region of the town. In the 1800s, there could be many hamlets within one town, and without transportation, students could not be expected to walk miles to a distant schoolhouse, thus small buildings were erected and teachers - sometimes the local minister or his wife - stepped in to educate youngsters. The Tucker Mountain Schoolhouse remains in Andover to show what education was like long ago and it is open through October and run by the Andover Histosrical Society. The schoolhouse was built in 1837 and served the local community until 1893, when a fast dwindling student population led to its closing. According to information at www.andoverhistory. org, “it stands today in its original setting and location, in very good condition, looking much as it did when it was in active use.” The schoolhouse, like most of its era, was a single room, and it measures about 16 feet by 18 feet. An “ell” or

shed that serves as a weather-protective entrance to the school building was also the place for storing firewood. Another necessity was a small closet in the shed with the two-hole privy. The building is of post-and-beam construction, made of hand-hewn timbers fastened with trunnels, and it sits on a foundation of unmortared granite stones. The walls are sheathed with vertical planks, covered externally with clapboards. Once you were at your desk, you were expected to sit quietly and in place; the pupils’ heavy plank desks were (and still are) bolted to the floor. Those who visit will see that the floor slopes downward on two sides toward the center of the room, increasing visibility for the pupils in the back rows (a frequently-seen design detail in the schools of this time). The interior walls are covered with wide pine boards painted flat black to serve as chalkboards. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is now a museum exhibiting details of a way of education that no longer exists. In the 1830s, Ashland, New Hampshire, like many New England towns, was likely a remote spot. The town was fortunate to have as a resident, Miss Nancy Perkins, as a teacher.

Perkins saw the need for a school in the area, and rolled up her sleeves and started a private high school in the Vestry of the town’s Baptist church. The school was in session from 1836 to 1847, according to Ashland, New Hampshire Centennial 1868 to 1968. She was said to be a wonderful teacher and parents and students alike sang her praises. Indeed, she must have been a good teacher with a love for passing on knowledge because she eventually married Oren Cheney and together, they helped found Bates College. Schooling was certainly different from what we experience today. In the 1880s in Ashland, grammar school students were required to take an exam written by the school board each term. Pupils had to answer 60 percent of the test questions correctly in order to advance to the next grade. Old schoolhouses, usually consisting of just one room, were a part of the American landscape for decades. Ask any older person and it’s a good bet they once attended a one-room schoolhouse. These charming little buildings were every town’s answer to education and local children from age 5 to 15 or more all sat in one room, taught by a single adult woman or man. Conditions in many village schools were par with the rest of society’s housing at the time: a woodstove warmed the space and students were often expected to split and carry wood to feed the heat source; a bucket of water served as refreshment and another was for washing hands. Outside, usually hidden behind bushes, sat the outhouse. A very unusual school was in session at Canterbury Shaker Village

Improve, Protect, Beautify

in Canterbury in the 1800s and into the 1900s. The Shaker religious sect welcomed and cared for many orphaned or foster children over the years and they were given excellent educations at the Shaker school. The one room, one-story school was erected in 1823. As the population of Canterbury Shaker Village expanded, with it came more children and in 1863 the school was expanded to become a two-story structure. Area children were allowed to attend the school as well as Shaker children. In Sandwich, NH, the Lower Corner School was a place of learning in the mid and late 1800s. Most towns were in remote spots and many families lived in even deeper rural areas. Small schools were built to serve children in various rural locations. The Lower Corner School began in 1825 as the John Quincy Adams School. At that time, according to information at, citizens in Sandwich voted a tax of $193.70 to build a schoolhouse. The school was small with a plank door, tiny windows that were placed high and underpinnings of stone. A big fireplace heated the building. Four-foot wood fed the fire that kept teacher and students warm during the cold winters. Fireplaces are notorious for providing uneven heat and this one, as a former student recalled, provided heat that “burned the face while the back was freezing.” Students who sat at the back of the room took turns moving to the front to share the warmth during the day. In the 1880s the school was renamed • Yesteryear Continued on page 27

• Yesteryear Continued from page 26 the Lower Corner School. By the 1930s an addition brought indoor toilet and storage facilities to the school and a playground. In 1944 the school closed and students traveled to the Center School in the town. Children in the Cook settlement in Moultonborough had a schoolhouse near a spring. The school building was modest in size; one child who attended the school was said to be the envy of all the other students because he could coast down from his home to the schoolhouse door in snowy winter weather, according to Moultonborough to the 20th Century, a publication of the Moultonborough Historical Society Bicentennial Issue 1963. As the year progressed, school children had quite a walk to get to school – down a steep hill, through fields and over stonewalls and fences. Even with the arduous walk each day, some students were said to have good or perfect attendance. The Village School in Moultonborough was the site of learning for many years. During the early part of the 1900s the school was located opposite the Moultonboro Town House and was a one-room school. By 1913 the town improved the school as the population grew. An assistant teacher was hired in the 1920s and the school was divided and two regular teachers were hired. A jacketed stove was secured for the school and a note in town reports for 1923 stated, “The new stove makes it possible to have the rooms comfortable as far as the heat is concerned.” In 1925 a new school had been built and housed elementary school aged children. In her book, I Remember Moultonboro New Hampshire by Frances A. Stevens, she recalled being a student at the school in the late 1920s. “As I remember, when this school was first built there was a big stove with a jacket around it in the back corner of the room. In the winter when it was real

cold she would have us gather around the stove for our classes. It wasn’t long before they put in a furnace with steam radiators.” On the other side of Lake Winnipesaukee, schooling was seen as a necessity in New Durham. The town’s original land grand specified that a portion of the community’s money be set aside for a schoolhouse. In 1779 the town raised money to hire a town school teacher and for some years after, money was voted for schooling. At this time there were no school houses in the town and school masters were hired who traveled from town to town boarding with different families. These men would teach the children of the area the basics: reading, writing and spelling. By the 1800s schools were built in New Durham. In the late 1800s, improvements were made with the installation of blackboards, iron stoves and desks. In 1906, the annual report of the school board stated that “We cannot expect a woman to teach in a town paying $6.50 to $7.50 for 24 weeks in a year when she can obtain $8.00 to $9.00 per week for 34 to 36 weeks in the year. She will most certainly choose the latter.” According to The History of New Durham, New Hampshire by Ellen Cloutman Jennings, the original 14 New Durham schools had shrunk to just seven with a school budget of about $1,000. Teacher’s salaries, supplies and repairs came out of this budget and the board closed schools when necessary if enrollment dropped drastically. Further north in the Plymouth, NH area, the village of Dorchester had a small schoolhouse that was built in 1808 and originally called the North District School. It was used as a oneroom school for area children until 1926. The school’s last teacher was Lena Bosence Walker. According to, “…the 1808 Schoolhouse, a single story clapboarded structure, its gable

front capped by a small gable-roofed cupola and set above a rock wall foundation.” At excellent preserved one room schoolhouse is part of the Wolfeboro Historical Society on South Main Street. The Society oversses The Clark House Museum Complex of structures at the site, including the Pleasant Valley School. The one room school was built about 1805 on land in South Wolfeboro in the area known as Pleasant Valley according to information at www. Known for some time as District #3 School, some residents called it the Townsend School, because it was close to the

home of Reverend Isaac Townsend, Wolfeboro’s first minister. (Perhaps the reverend visited the school and taught religious classes to the children.) The school was crude by today’s standards, as were most in New England. Local children learned to make do. All grades were taught in the one room. The enrollment of students ranged from 20 to 50. In 1959 the schoolhouse was moved to its present location at the Clark Museum Complex. (To tour the schoolhouse museum during seasonal hours, call the Wolfeboro Historical Society at 569-4997.)

Former Concord Theatre to be Renamed Bank of New Hampshire Stage The Capitol Center for the Arts (CCA) and Bank of New Hampshire are pleased to announce the new name for the former Concord Theatre will be the Bank of New Hampshire Stage. The new name is in recognition of a significant financial contribution by the financial institution. The renaming was announced at a recent press conference, which included information and presentations by Dr. Robert Wilson, CCA Campaign Chair; Nicolette Clarke, CCA Executive Director; Paul Falvey, Bank of New Hampshire President and CEO; Kreg Jones, P.A., The Architects; and Mark Goldstein, Principal and Project Manager, Milestone Engineering & Construction, Inc. The historic Concord Theatre served as a first run movie theater from 1933 to 1994. The Capitol Center for the Arts is renovating the venue and giving it new life as a presenting house for small-scale live performances and special events. The addition of the new flexible configuration theatre will be appropriate for small-scale productions with seated audiences of 280 and a music club for standing audiences up to 450 people. “Having a smaller scale venue to complement the 1,300 seat Chubb Theatre has been the centerpiece of our strategic vision for the Capitol Center for the Arts since 2006,” said Nicolette Clarke, Executive director of the Capitol Center for the Arts. “We are honored by the opportunity to fulfill that vision and preserve a beloved piece of Concord history through the rehabilitation of the Concord Theatre into a contemporary flexible venue for live performances. The rebirth of this venue will serve as an exciting new component of the cultural and economic life of the Concord region. Every capital campaign needs a leadership gift and the CCA is grateful

“Wright Museum Re-Framing Current Notion of “History” In a world in which “history” seems to last less than the time it takes to post an update on social media, the odds might have been stacked against the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro. Charged with commemorating all things related to World War II, the museum, however, has found a way to make the nation’s “greatest war” not only relevant, but engaging to all ages. “We host fun events, such as a car show every August, a family day in July and other events that appeal to kids and parents alike,” said Mike Culver, executive director. Extending beyond military ephemera to include art and photography, the museum features a changing lineup of exhibits, some of which focus on other conflicts to better contextualize the impact of WWII beyond the 1940’s. In 2019, the museum plans to host a Smithsonian exhibit called Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II. According to Culver,

the subject matter is hard-hitting. “It addresses the internment of Japanese Americans, one of the most egregious events associated with the war,” he said. The Smithsonian notes that the exhibit “traces the story of this incarceration

and the people who survived it. Young and old lived crowded together in hastily-built camps, endured poor living conditions, and were under the constant watch of military guards for two-and-a-half years.” Meanwhile, noted Culver, brave Japanese American men risked their lives fighting for the United States. “This exhibit will present to visitors personal stories, fascinating documents, stunning photographs, and engaging interactives,” he said. “It speaks to themes that are as relevant today as they were 75 years ago, taking a deep look at immigration, prejudice, civil rights, heroism, and what it means to be an American.” The only caveat is that the show does not come inexpensively, as Culver cited a price tag of $12,000 for a 10-week

stay. If funding is secured, though, he said he believes the exhibit could attract many more visitors, including a greater number of student tours. “This is a story that needs to be told and told by us,” he said. “Since next year is the 25th anniversary of the Wright Museum, I believe it is the perfect moment in our history to present this challenging subject to our audience… The affiliation with the Smithsonian also gives us their stamp of approval, which I think is very important to the future of the Wright.” For Culver, though, the future is as much about now as it is, well, the future. “As a nonprofit history museum in a world full of fast-paced technology, we cannot afford to look past today,” he said. “It is what makes this industry and this museum in particular so interesting.” Unique to traditional WWII museums, the Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the home front and battle field. The Wright Museum of World War II is located on Center Street in Wolfeboro, NH and is open daily to the public for the 2018 season from May 1 through October 31. Museum hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, and Sunday from 12 to 4 pm. To learn more about the museum, or sponsorships of this potential new exhibit, visit

Fall Textile Dyeing Workshops on Squam Lake The Sandwich Home Industries, League of NH Craftsmen Fine Craft Gallery, is offering two textile dyeing workshops the weekends of October 19 to 21 and October 26 to 28 with instructor Sara Goodman. Both workshops will be held in Center Harbor on beautiful Squam Lake. Natural Dyes, Part I: Indigo and Shibori is a class for quilters and stitchers of all kinds who want to dye their own cloth. It is also appropriate for spinners, knitters, and weavers who want to dye their own yarn. Japanese shibori is an ancient technique for creating patterns on cloth. Using various ways of reserving portions of cloth with folds, pleats, pulled stitches, wrapped string, etc., areas of shaped resist are made where the dye cannot penetrate. The Japanese developed the techniques of shibori into a sophisticated and complex art form. There are literally hundreds of Japanese shibori techniques, each with their own name. In this class, participants will learn three essential methods: mokume (stitching), arashi (pole wrapping), and itajime (fold and clamp). Natural Dyes Par II; The Mordant Dyes on Cloth and Yarn is a class for quilters and stitchers of all kinds who want to dye their own cloth, and it is also appropriate for spinners, knitters, and weavers who want to dye their yarn. This class will cover

of NH Craftsmen since 2006. Students do not have to take Part I to sign up for Part II. A founding member of the League of NH Craftsmen, Sandwich Home Industries is located at 32 Main Street, in the historic village of Center Sandwich. To register for workshops, contact or call 603-284-6831. The gallery, representing over 170 League of NH Craftsmen juried craftsmen, is open daily during the summer/fall season.

Naturally dyed material. fiber preparation on all-natural fibers – both plant and animal – for successful dyeing. A key to good dye results is proper mordanting. Participants will be given 15”X15” squares of cotton cloth for making samples. Students can also bring their own cloth to experiment. Proper scouring instructions will be provided prior to class to obtain good results. Sara Goodman is a textile artist with a studio in Center Harbor, NH. She has been weaving, dyeing with natural dyes, and doing shibori for over 35 years. Her work has been featured in many fiber arts publications and also in national and international exhibitions.
