This past summer has been a tough one across the country for artistic interests. The following is just a smattering of the recent news articles related to the impacts of the recession on artists.
In Dennis we have a large number of artists and art galleries. These people are a major part of the local home grown economy. In some parts of the state the slogan “Buy Local” is used to support local farms. In Dennis, “Buy Local” clearly needs to include consideration for this important part of the local economy. The artists of Dennis clearly are part of what brings people back to town year after year. We as a community need to remember this and thank them for their impact on the town economy.
