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, February 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.
