Wareham Fearing Tavern to open for tours and art show

Aug 3, 2018

The Wareham Historical Society’s Fearing Tavern will be open for weekend tours beginning August 4 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Docents of the Wareham Historical Society will discuss the the features and history of the tavern during tours. Items from the Historical Society’s archives will also be on display.

An art show put on by members of the Bourne-Wareham Art Association will also feature at the tavern.

The collaboration is intended to benefit both organizations with a portion of all art sales donated to student scholarships and art awards.

Over the years, local high school seniors have received these awards to help supplement cost of college and other higher education opportunities.

The Bourne-Wareham Art Association members scheduled to exhibit at the tavern are Patricia White, Betty Beaulieu, Tim Foley, Charlene Mackiewicz, Mary Nyman, Mark Madden, John Wiliszowski, Maureen Bean and Charles Wood.

Visitors can expect to see original watercolors, oil paintings, pastel paintings, wood carvings, prints, photography and craft items.

Tours will run until the last weekend of September.
