This exhibit highlighted the painting “Millers Falls Company”, one of the earliest commissioned works by Franklin County landscape artist Stephen Maniatty (1910-1984), thought to have been part of a mural in Greenfield’s Mansion House Hotel. The museum proudly debuts this painting after a recent restoration by local artist Frank Gregory. 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; in hand made tools embellished with personalized artwork; and original paintings by local artists, including Thurman Munson, Frank Gregory, Susan Pecora and Astrid Sheckels.
