"The White Mountains: Seeing Through New Eyes" with Artist in Residence Deb Horner
Wednesday, December 2nd, 6pm

Artist-in-Residence Deb Horner will be giving a talk and exhibit of recent watercolors. Titled "The White Mountains: Seeing Through New Eyes," Horner will show slides and artwork from her time spent in the Whites this past spring. In addition to discussing her process of creating a landscape painting, she will talk about the experience as a painter compared to her earlier adventure as a dog musher in the Whites. For anyone who loves the White Mountains, this is a must-see presentation and exhibit. The art exhibit will be showing through the month of December.
