Biography Bessie Drennan
Every autumn for the past 39 years, the Firemen’s Auxiliary of Woodbury, a graying group of community-minded women, has sponsored an art exhibit and craft fair to honor a Vermont original: folk artist Bessie Drennan.
Her works remain obscure decades after her death, but among loyal fans the paintings of Bessie invite comparison to those of another artist of her era: Anna Mary Robertson, better known as Grandma Moses.
On a recent Wednesday afternoon, as happens every year around this time, the cars began arriving at South Woodbury Church on Route 14, and the owners of Drennan art, their treasures tucked under arm, began handing over, for four days, the paintings that grace a wall or two of their homes the rest of the year.
