    Marty lives with his lovely wife, Linda in their cabin in Columbia. Having recently retired from 35 years of teaching physical education here in NH they moved to the north country to fulfill a lifelong dream.  The Zarlis have four grown children and six grandchildren. Family is very important to them as evidenced by their many road trips near and far to attend games, concerts and graduations. 

    Marty is an avid outdoorsman who loves fly fishing, hunting and hiking. His love of painting comes from his dad. His talent for combining this passion for the outdoors and incorporating it into his art is reflected in his colorful and sometimes " out of the box" creations crafted in his Bungy Road studio. 

    Come take a look at Marty's work  at the Tillotson Center Gallery through the month of July.  Gallery is open Monday through Thursday 8-4:00 and during all public events. Admission to the Gallery is free.

    Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart star in this glorious revival of Harold Pinter’s classic comedy, filmed live on stage from the West End in London.


    One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

    An exploration of Pompeii, a city cloaked in mystery and depicted through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced and imagined it over the course of history: from Pliny the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau.  Famously known for the catastrophic volcanic eruption which buried Pompeii along with its inhabitants over 2000 years ago, Pompeii: Sin City hosted by Isabella Rossellini offers audiences an extraordinary snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment of burial, showing how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and ultimately, their fate.

    Admission:  $8 Adults / Tillotson Members & Students $4.

    Florence in the era of the powerhouse Italian statesman, politician and patron Lorenzo de' Medici, was the heart of Renaissance art and culture. One artist, above all others, was able to evoke the lights and shadows of this unforgettable era: Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). Through Botticelli: Florence and the Medici, we re-live Florence and all its art workshops through Botticelli's life, his collaborations, his challenges and successes. From the outset of Botticelli's career under the wing of the Medici family, he established himself as the inventor of an ideal beauty, seen in works such as The Allegory of Spring and the Birth of Venus. The death of Lorenzo de Medici marked the downward spiral of the Florentine master, who was destined to be forgotten for over three centuries, but the rediscovery of Botticelli by the Pre-Raphaelites reignited a genuine fascination with the artist and sparked a Botticelli-mania which continues to this day.
