DLWA Chosen to Receive Joseph Fiore Painting

DLWA is pleased to announce the award of a stunning original painting by Joseph Fiore.  Maine Farmland Trust and the Falcon Foundation awarded several of Fiore’s paintings to environmental organizations that are protecting land from development to allow for farming, wildlife, recreation and more. The late Joe Fiore and his wife Mary were deeply connected to the natural world and supported DLWA and other environmental organizations. 

Joe, a well-known New York artist,  painted in his barn studio while summering in Jefferson. Mary, with son Tom and daughter Susanna, still return each summer and stay at their old farm in Jefferson.  
“We are thrilled to display a painting inspired by the very land we strive to conserve,” said Jody Jones, DLWA Executive Director.
