Bill Maxfield is Concord Art’s resident installation expert and volunteer extraordinaire.

Candace Nelson is a retired development aid worker, a career that took her to Latin America and Africa dozens of times over thirty-four years. In retirement, she has become a student of storytelling. She appeared on Stories from the Stage in 2022 and is inspired to transform her own moments, small and large, into stories. Candace and her husband have lived in Concord for twenty-five years, raising their two sons here. From May to October, she moves to Poland, ME, where she mostly lives outdoors–birding, biking, swimming, and watching clouds move over water.

Joe Palumbo, born and raised in Concord on a farm along Battle Road, works as an interpreter and tour guide locally. He is focused on sharing both the well-known and the lesser-known local narratives as we work to broaden the story to include all the people in our town. Now is our chance to really build a Concord for everyone.

Rhoda Rosenberg’s retrospective, Rhoda Rosenberg – Shapes of Time: 1968-2022, is on view at Concord Art through December 17th.

Alexandra Sheldon is an artist from Cambridge, MA. She specializes in making painterly collages and teaching mixed media. She is represented by the Bromfield Gallery in Boston.
