At a meeting held at the home of Elisha Watson, Jr. on the evening of February 28, 1839, a resolution was passed unanimously by a group of interested persons "to establish an Episcopal Church in the Village of Wakefield" to be called the Church of the Ascension. That first church was a wooden frame building standing about one half mile from the corner on which the church now stands and was consecrated on Ascension Day, June 3, 1840. The building was destroyed in 1935.
The present church was built on the Main Street - Kenyon Ave. site and consecrated in June 1883. With the exception of the bell tower and the enclosed entrance and ramp, the exterior has remained the same for more than 125 years.

Art has always played a major role in my life. As a child, my parents nurtured my creative abilities and desires by enrolling me in private art lessons. Many different avenues opened as I progressed through my work. I continued my art education through study at The Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, PA, Rowan University of Glassboro, NJ and The University of Rhode Island in Kingston, RI, from which I hold a BFA.
Throughout the years, I have explored a variety of mediums, including: three-dimensional design, photography, illustration, printmaking, pottery, and painting in oils, acrylics and watercolor. I enjoy creating work that captures the essence of a place, time, or an individual subject’s personality. When developing a work of art, I am always mindful of my use of color, light and form to bring a piece to its finished point. The entire process of creating a work is thoughtful, moving, and can be frustrating and exciting all wrapped tightly leaving a precious little gift when completed.
Along with developing my own work. I have the privilege of encouraging young students to express their own creativity by teaching lessons in a variety of mediums. I currently offer art lessons for all ages out of my private studio.
It is a great blessing to me each and every day that I am able to explore, create, express and teach art. My hopes are to pass along the same joy and passion to others.

The Rhode Island Weaving Center was established in December of 2020. While a new organization, it builds on a strong foundation. Starting two years ago, a group of long-time handweavers at the Saunderstown Weaving School started to discuss how to serve the ever-growing number of both beginner and experienced weavers. With leadership from the SWS, the decision was made to create a non-profit organization to expand the teaching and recognition of handweaving and other fiber arts. And hence the Rhode Island Weaving Center was born! In May the Center established its home on the second floor of the historic Kenyon's Department Store building, on Main Street in Wakefield, RI. A studio with multiple looms has been set up, and a series of classes—both beginning weaving and other fiber arts (potentially tapestry, rigid heddle, inkle weaving) will be offered this summer and fall.
The mission of the Rhode Island Weaving Center is to expand and advance the practice of handweaving through classes, workshops, exhibitions, collaborations, and weaving resources. The Center also serves as a location for other fiber artists to work and learn from one another. We are all volunteers, working together to promote handweaving and the fiber arts. We thank all of the hard work of the many, many volunteers who have helped us to open the Rhode Island Weaving Center.

“We don’t produce World War II films. We produce documentary films on individual personal stories from World War II. I think there’s a pretty significant difference.
We educate younger generations about the war. We do not approach this in ways WE think are best. We teach based on how students are actually learning and what tools THEY themselves are utilizing today to explore history, whether that be via strong visual storytelling in films that capture their attention and imagination, or utilizing new story telling technology such as Virtual Reality (VR).
We push out much of this content via Social Media channels, as well as via traditional national and international television networks. We film all these documentaries, narrated by some of the biggest names in television, music, sports and the movies, in the locations where they actually played out in the war. Often bringing back a veteran or survivor with us to where their own individual WWII story began and ended. Our studio is Europe, the Pacific and the Far-East.
We hope these award-winning films, which rank in the top-5 of most requested programs nationally by PBS and Public Television affiliates, will motivate not just students, but everyone to learn more about this critical time period in world history. The lessons of which still strongly resonate today. We make all these resources available for free to anyone who wants to explore World War II’s impact on the lives of those who lived through it.”
