I have a very closely connected arts community online and that helped me grow as an artist. But then once I started this group with Elizabeth [Cohen] who's a potter, the group grew really fast. Everyone thought, 'Oh, my gosh, I thought I was the only one.'" Since exhibiting their work through the WCAP initiative in the vacant shop windows of the former Rugged Bear location last spring, Glassenberg and others in the group have felt an even greater interconnectedness. Not only did the display result in several com- missioned works, but the group has begun planning more art initiatives, recently secur- ing a grant to stage a public art experience at Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend in the spring. Comments member and illustrator Jenny Schneider, who moved to Wellesley two years ago from Cambridge: "I'm very excited to be starting a creative movement with my friends. It's very alive and very refreshing. In Cambridge, everything was already around me. You would just stumble upon something creative. Here, we're bringing something new to the community. " That's not to say that artists and crafters have not been present in Wellesley or that visual artists have not found support locally in the past. The Wellesley Recreation Department offers art classes for adults and students. Wellesley College has a well-respected pro- gram and boasts the Davis Museum.
