The Road Not Taken

Artistic Interpretations of the Poetry of Robert Frost

 

Exhibit on Display January 3 - February 4th

The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, comes to the Baker Free Library in Bow NH – January 3 -February 4, 2022.

The Road Not Taken, a fine art exhibit inspired by the poetry of Robert Frost, is making the rounds of libraries and nature centers throughout the state of New Hampshire. The presentation, designed by three Derry artists, Ingeborg V. Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski and Corinne Dodge, features approximately 30 works that reflect a variety of personal interpretations of the most famous as well as some of the “less traveled” works of one of America’s most inspiring poets, Robert Frost.

Images in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics and oils are accompanied by a selected verse that inspired each individual work. An exhibit reference book provides additional information on the artists as well as upcoming exhibit venues.

Originally the exhibit was created to support the grand re-opening of the Derry Public Library, Derry NH, in September, 2011. Since that time, the exhibit has been touring libraries and community venues in southern New Hampshire. Additional scheduling is underway to present The Road Not Taken, with a goal of reaching all of the public libraries in the state.


About the Artists

Ingeborg Seaboyer is a lifelong resident of Derry, New Hampshire.  Her art education has stretched from Pinkerton Academy to the University of New Hampshire to the Manchester Institute of Arts & Sciences (now the New Hampshire Institute of Art) where she began to explore pen and ink drawing in 1993.  A forester with the State of New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands, her drawing has turned into something of a second career.  She has illustrated three books:  Selecting Trees for Urban Landscape Ecosystems, and Good Forestry in the Granite State 1st and 2nd Editions.  Inge has provided most of the illustrations for Project Learning Tree’s Focus on New Hampshire Forests. Additionally, she has completed commissions for the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association, the New Hampshire Tree Farm Committee and the UNH Cooperative Extension.  She has combined both watercolor and colored pencil with her pen and ink techniques, as well as working solely in watercolor. She is a founding member of the Derry Area Artists Collaborative and her work can be viewed at www.derryareaartists.com.

 

Corinne Dodge resides in Derry, NH.  She is a retired school teacher, having taught children with multiple and severe disabilities since 1970. She worked in the PEACH Program in the Derry School District and developed the APPLE Program at the Rochester Middle School.  She is currently a massage therapist for autistic teenagers at Easter Seals in Manchester NH.

 

In 1992, while teaching children in the PEACH Program, Corinne participated in the 7th grade art curriculum along with her students.  It was then that she first discovered her interest and abilities in drawing.  She later went on to take art courses at the NH institute of Art, EW Poore and the College or Lifelong Learning. Corinne worked in pen and ink under the mentorship of established artist Pamela Kennedy, now living and working on the West Coast.

 

Corinne utilizes a variety of mediums: pen and ink, watercolor, graphite and colored pencil.  Her style leans toward realism and includes some impressionistic work. A variety of subject matter includes landscapes, still lifes, portraits and abstracts. Nature is a favorite theme; Corinne is best known for the colorations in her beach rocks series.  She is an award-winning artist, with recognition from the Greater Derry Arts Council, Manchester Art in the Park Fine Arts Festival, NH Division of Parks and Recreation, and Londonderry Art on the Common.  Her work can be viewed at www.corinnedodgefineart.com

 

Judy Krassowski is a teaching artist and writer, home-based in Hooksett, New Hampshire, with a BA in Fine Art/Studio Art, Notre Dame College, and a M.Ed in Technology in Education, Lesley University.  Judy is an arts administrator, STEM to STEAM advocate and teaching artist at Trinity High School in Manchester NH, where she brings patience, flexibility and enthusiasm to arts-related projects.  She utilizes her experiences in both private and public education, municipal government and events to support new efforts in the arts. The Road Not Taken exhibit gave her an opportunity to revisit her Yankee friends, Inge and Corinne, and she thanks them for their support, encouragement and always timely friendship. Judy’s work can be viewed at Ocean Boulevard Studio at www.judykrassowski.com.
