Adapted from a Museum of Our Industrial Heritage press release:

On Saturday, June 7th, from 10AM to 4PM, the Museum of Our Industrial Heritage will host a special exhibit, The Art of Industry, with an artist’s reception on Friday, June 6th, from 5PM to 8PM.  Admission is free.

The exhibit highlights the painting “Millers Falls Company”, one of the earliest commissioned works by Franklin County landscape artist Stephen Maniatty (1910-1984).  A painting of the Millers Falls Tool Company in Millers Falls, it is thought to be part of a mural from the Mansion House Hotel in Greenfield. (The hotel was destroyed by fire in 1959).  The museum proudly debuts this painting after a recent restoration by local artist Frank Gregory.

Also in the exhibit:  integrity of workmanship, design, and materials is on display in hand-drawn blueprints and promotional artwork from Russell Cutlery, Greenfield Tap & Die, and other former manufacturing companies of Franklin County; hand made tools embellished with personalized artwork; and original paintings by local artists, including Thurman Munson, Frank Gregory, Susan Pecora, and Astrid Sheckels.
