The Pegs Challenge - 2018

The Chester Historical Society is inviting anyone who likes a challenge to participate in its seventh Creative Challenge linking Chester history and art. 

This spring, those accepting the Pegs Challenge will be given three wooden pegs, which were discovered at the M.S. Brooks & Sons factory on Liberty Street.

As with past Creative Challenges (such as Hooked Again, based on Brooks’ hooks), this spring’s Pegs Challenge is for area artists, sculptors, photographers, engineers, jewelry designers, and all others with a creative mind.

The pegs will be available at the end of the month at Maple & Main Gallery in Chester Center. The artists’ entrance fee of $30 includes two tickets to the Pegs Challenge Silent Auction & Reception on Saturday, April 7 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Chester Meeting House.

Tickets to attend the evening will be sold at Maple & Main and at Lark in March. All proceeds from the silent auction help the Chester Historical Society preserve Chester history and maintain the Chester Museum at The Mill.

Questions? Call Sosse Baker at 860-526-9822. Read about past Creative Challenges here.
