Event Details

Join us for a presentation by Connecticut-based husband and wife, Garth Evans and Leila Philip, as they talk about and share works from their recent collaborative book project, Water Rising, which presents watercolors by Evans and poems by Philip. Art has played an important role in the preservation of the American landscape and the authors intend for this project to draw upon that history to challenge and inspire audiences to a greater awareness of and discussion about our relationship to our rural spaces. Leila Philip is the author of three books and has received numerous awards for her writing including from the National Endowment for the Arts, the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Garth Evans is a British sculptor whose work is included in major public collections in the United States, Britain and Australia. The title poem of Water Rising was a finalist for the 2015 Pushcart Prize in literature. Proceeds from book sales will be donated to support environmental stewardship. For more information on the project, visit www.water-rising.com. This event is free and open to the public.
