Bernadine Custer Sharp and her husband, Jimmy Sharp, were well-recognized artists who spent their summers here in Londonderry. Although they didn’t have children of their own, Bernadine held art classes in her home for local children and often used them as subjects for her paintings. When she died, she left her home to the Londonderry Historical Society. The annual student art show was established in her honor in 1996.
