In celebration of March as National Youth Art Month, Building Community through Art, an exhibition showcasing the creative spirit and artistic talent of students from Dover Middle School, will feature drawings, paintings, and 3-dimensional work created by local students. Building Community through Art is presented by the Woodman Museum and Marie Robicheau and Jo-Ann Gardella—art educators at Dover Middle School—in recognition of the important role the arts play in developing a total education curriculum.

Thom Hindle Gallery

The Keefe House was built in 1825 for Asa Tufts, owner of Tufts Apothecary. In 1847, his son Charles took over the shop as Asa became involved in banking and insurance until his death in 1884. The house was purchased in 1917 by F. Clyde Keefe, a local attorney and twice mayor from 1934-35 and again from 1942-47. The home remained in the Keefe family for three generations.
