 A large part of the Everson museum has been set aside for the next couple weeks to display the art of those who might have no other way to express themselves.  The “Unique” exhibit and magazine  are the result of a partnership between Arise, the museum and several sponsors.   Artists of differing abilities submitted more than 180 pieces of art from a six county region.  One of them was Michael Simmons of Watertown.
