September 2013--After almost nine years and more than 70 feature stories, the Artful Homes program has come to an end. The stories, written primarily by Amy Shuman (as well as by Shane Riggs) and photographed by John Shuman, were all commissioned by the Allegany Arts Council to showcase some of the many artists, art patrons, and artful homes that exist throughout our community. Initially a collaboration with the Historic Highland Association of Realtors, the stories have all been featured in past issues of the Saturday Real Estate Guide of the Cumberland Times-News. All of the stories are also archived below. The Allegany Arts Council would like to extend its thanks and appreciation to Amy, John, and Shane for all their great work!
