Robert Strong Woodard Event in Old Deerfield

"What Did Robert Frost & Jack Benny Have In Common?" . . . this banner hangs over Bridge Street in Shelburne Falls announcing the Exhibition of Robert Strong Woodward's works to be display in Old Deerfield.

The Exhibition begins on September 21st and runs through October 14th.  The native artist spent many years painting the New England countryside from his Buckland home and studios in surrounding towns.

BUT . . . When you ask, "What Did Robert Frost & Jack Benny Have in Common?" . . . Robert Strong Woodward!  I spent some time reviewing the website and didn't see any reference to this fact so, if you head to the exhibit let us know what you find out.  Did they own his paintings? Were they friends?

Tim grew up in Conway & Ashfield and has a vast knowledge of the Western Massachusetts area.  He worked in the Coast Guard and obtained a degree from the University of Massachusetts.  Upon returning to Ashfield with his wife, Erika, and their two children, he worked in the carpentry field obtaining a valuable understanding and plenty of experience in the building process.  He is now excited to be moving from building real estate to selling it.

Tim recently shared, "I have already begun to appreciate the dynamic nature of this job, and that is why I am working closely with Phil Pless, who has over 30 successful years of experience in the industry".  It is Tim's goal to assist buyers and sellers with their real estate needs throughout Western Massachusetts for many years to come.
