Sunday is a great day for spending time in appreciation. The second and last day of Newton Open Studios. See http://newtonopenstudios.com/ for more details. These are two exhibits I enjoyed yesterday.

Peter Kastner’s is a craftman who produces original and fine arts prints of community and neighborhood maps. I spent a lot of time studying these maps and ended up purchasing a 1917 map of Newton. Peter is familiar with the history behind these maps. As I continue to learn about the history of the villages of Newton, I think I have a new resource. www.communityheritagemaps.com
