Local artists featured in Brooksville Gallery

Penobscot residents Lesley Brody Nelson and Todd R. Nelson, pictured with one of Lesley’s quilts as background, are two local artists and writers whose work was showcased in an event entitled The Wisdom of Ordinary Things at the Gallery Within at Reversing Falls Sanctuary in Brooksville. During February, the work of 12 artists focused on the enduring wisdom of cherished things or experiences. On Sunday, February 26, writers Leslee Fiveland and Todd Nelson brought the month-long event to a close on a high note with their presentation of The Courage of Ordinary Words: Two Writers Share Their Work which featured readings and a writing exercise designed to encourage awareness and inspire participants to do their own writing.
