Lovely gathering

Aaron Nadeau

Last Sunday at Slates Restaurant in Hallowell about 35 people gathered to meet Peter Alexander, the new Executive Director of the Maine Alliance for Arts Education. Board president, Elizabeth Watson greeted guests and the master of ceremony for the evening was past board member and retired superintendent Rich Abramson. He introduced Peter who shared some of his plans. And the new director of the Maine Arts Commission Julie Richard spoke as well.

Art educator and past board member Linda Phillips set up an art exhibit of her student work from Maranacook High School. Peter and student Aaron Nadeau from Bath provided a musical performance.

The guests included past director Carol Trimble, interim director Gail Scott, board member Joan Staffiere, and Susan Potters. There were educators in attendance and supports of arts education.

Along with meeting Peter the reception was also a fundraiser for MAAE. If you were unable to attend, MAAE will continue to accept your donations by going to their website at

Good luck to Peter and best wishes to Maine Alliance for Arts Education as they start a new chapter of their arts education work.
