WALKING IN THE WHITES: A Poet/Painter Dialogue

Location: Museum of the White Mountains, Main Gallery

Date: November 5, 2019 - December 13, 2019

Opening Reception: November 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 83 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.

This exhibit is funded in part by a grant from The Waterman Fund.

The arts can provide personal sanctuaries, life giving inspiration, and physical therapy. Simultaneously, arts experiences can create common ground and opportunities to connect us to each other. This exhibit brings together creative work from all over New Hampshire that tells the story of the power of art at this time in this place.


Location: Silver Center for the Arts, Lobby Gallery

Date: February 4, 2020 - February 29, 2020

Opening Reception: February 4, 5-6:30pm

Art continues to serve a central purpose in our society and is integral to everyday life
and education. From the process of creating to the experience of artworks, art is a
universal language that expresses the needs of all ages. Living in rural New Hampshire
can be isolating and arts experiences oftentimes are the pathways to creating community.
This exhibition includes work from northern New Hampshire’s high school, college, and
community education students. Co-curated by PSU interdisciplinary studies student
Sarah Connor ’20.

Not only does the White Mountain region have a long history of maps and map makers, it also boasts one of the richest assortment of map designs of any mountainous region. Each map describes specific places and routes, and also tells a story of the knowledge, curiosity, purposes, pleasures, and design ideas of the people of its time. This interactive exhibit will feature maps from the far and recent past, as well as new map tools for today’s hikers, tourists, scientists, weekend explorers, and enthusiasts. 

Museum exhibitions are presented with support from MWM membership.
