Neil Hammer Gallery
Exhibit and Sale

Mary Crampton Paintings - November-December, 2019 

Meekins Library will host an exhibit and sale of paintings by former Haydenville resident, Mary Crampton (5/30/1910-2/5/2005), during the months of November and December, 2019, in the Neil Hammer Gallery.

After her mother died of tuberculosis, Mary Elizabeth Crampton moved to Haydenville in 1925 at the age of 14 to live with her two maiden aunts. She graduated as valedictorian of her class at St. Michael’s High School on State St, Northampton, attended Our Lady of the Elms College in Chicopee, and graduated in 1929. She was a teacher at the Haydenville Center School for 42 years, and retired in 1972.

Mary was active in St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Haydenville, the Williamsburg Historical Society, and was a trustee of the Haydenville Library. She enjoyed travel, and in her retirement years went to Europe 12 times. She was a reader, rug braider, and enjoyed oil painting. She took lessons from Williamsburg artist Greta Carey for many years.
