WALKING IN THE WHITES: A Poet/Painter Dialogue

Museum of the White Mountains 

November 5 – December 13, 2019

Opening Reception Nov 5, 5-6:30pm 

Featuring works by visual artist Kathryn Field and poet Timothy Muskat, this interactive and dynamic experience will engage visitors in a sense of place through words and images focused on the experience of the White Mountains. Tim has been hiking in the White Mountains all his life. He has completed 85 rounds of New Hampshire’s high 48; is working on his seventh so-called Grid; and has summited Mt Washington 416 times. Kathryn has been drawn to wilderness since childhood; the vastness, scale and raw forms of mountains have informed her work as a sculptor and painter. On view November 5 – December 13, 2019.
