Willey (Barbara) Fromm at tea
Yesterday at the library’s afternoon tea, Willey Fromm was honored by her community. A prolific portraitist and landscape artist, Fromm painted local subjects for over fifty years, celebrating life in Tamworth and sharing her consummate skill with the community. Nearly every household proudly displays at least one of her pieces. It was both a privilege and a pleasure to honor a community member who has brought so much joy to others through her artwork. Please come to the library to see her work which is on exhibit downstairs in the meeting room. There is also a scrapbook which chronicles the evolution of her life as an artist and a display of memorabilia in the meeting room’s display case. Click here for several other posts about Fromm.
