April 23, 2019 | Town Admin Print this page Visit Sutton Free Library during the month of April to view: THE ROAD NOT TAKEN Artistic Interpretations of the Poetry of Robert Frost **Open House with Artist’s Talk Wednesday, April 24th @ 5:30** The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, is making the rounds of libraries and nature centers throughout the state of New Hampshire. The presentation, designed by three Derry artists, Ingeborg V. Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski and Corinne Dodge, features approximately 30 works that reflect a variety of personal interpretations of the most famous as well as some of the “less traveled” works of one of America’s most inspiring poets, Robert Frost. Originally the exhibit was created to support the grand re-opening of the Derry Public Library, Derry NH, in September, 2011. Since that time, the exhibit has been touring libraries and community venues in southern New Hampshire. Additional scheduling is underway to present The Road Not Taken, with a goal of reaching all of the public libraries in the state. The artwork viewed in The Road Not Taken includes both new works inspired by the words of Robert Frost and some older pieces that provide vivid and connective imagery for his anthology of poems. Planning for this exhibit afforded the three artists the opportunity to revisit Frost’s work, reading and re-reading, to match just the right words to its appropriate visual. Many of the poems resurfaced with the familiarity and comfort of old friends; others, more unfamiliar or obscure, presented their own intrigue and challenges. The artists chose one poem to be interpreted with their individual styles as the lead works for the exhibit. Images in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics and oils are accompanied by a selected verse with artist’s notes, explaining the process or personal perspective that the artist applied to that particular piece.. An exhibit reference book provides additional information on the artists as well as upcoming exhibit venues. The exhibit can now be seen at the the Sutton Free Library, Sutton, NH for April 2019. Stop by and view the works inspired by America’s most famous unofficial poet laureate. Enjoy the comfort of an old friend, or introduce yourself to his view on neighbors, survival and nature. It’s worth checking out. Be sure not to miss the Artist’s Talk on Wednesday, April 24th at 5:30!
