Lemons Brook Farm: Lens, Pen, and Place

Bethel, NY

Sat, May. 21, 2016 – 1:00pm to Sat, May. 21, 2016 – 5:00pm

Place: Delaware Highlands Conservancy NY Office

Photographer and writer Sandy Long spent the month of November 2015 as Artist in Residence at the Conservancy's Lemons Brook Farm where she explored the lichen-labeled stone walls, the bird-and-bug-friendly herb garden, the shady forest trail littered with thought-provoking evidence of human activity, and the neighboring cows quietly grooming the fields leased by a local farmer. Her photographic experience was deepened with pen and paper, as she asked probing questions, recorded details, and wrote prose and poetry. Join us at the Lemons Brook house on Saturday, May 21 as Sandy shares some of her work from the residency in the digital and spoken word event "Lemons Brook Farm: Lens, Pen and Place."   Sandy will give presentations about her work at 1:30pm and 4:00pm, and there will be a guided walk on the woodland trail at 2:30pm.
