Pease Public Library welcomes photographer John Anderson Feb. 5

January 30th, 2014 by Michael

    PLYMOUTH — Pease Public Library will present John Anderson, local photographer and Plymouth State University professor, showing his videos and discussing his experience as “artist in residence” for the White Mountain National Forest through the Arts Alliance and the US Forest Service on Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. in the library’s Community Room.

    Anderson’s photographs of this period will be displayed on the walls in the main floor of the library for the month of February.

    Anderson has been creating art for 35 years, saying art has always been “quiet and peaceful.” His art is influenced by an integrated art process called a “Sit-See” where students draw what they find in nature where they are sitting.

    Anderson, however, instead of drawing, uses a camera and lights to show off his observations. The smallest detail, contrast of color and shape, subtle color variations and translucency, and tactile quality drive a never-ending amazement and fascination of the natural world.

    Library hours are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    For more information contact the library at 536- 2616 or at

    Seeing rats in a whole new light » They’ve taken the rap for the spread of the Bubonic Plague in Medieval Europe. Their name is synonymous with scoundrel, traitor, and snitch. And then there are their tails: long and skinny, pink and seemingly hairless. They’re rats, and they’re probably the last animals you’d think would […]
