.Poemscapes is an audiovisual event where pictures of trees are matched with poems about trees. Word and image have been fused into a new sensual landscape of slide shows that celebrate trees in all their splendor.
On September 20, 2017 from 3 - 4pm Hendersonville Public Library will host a Poemscapes event where photographer Ruthie Rosauer will be joined by poets Kate Stockman and Carol Pearce Bjorlie. The poets will be reading tree poems aloud. Bjorlie will also play a few selections on the cello. Trees photographs will be displayed in slide shows and in prints.
Those who have seen the tree photographs have remarked, " . . .it is an ecstatic celebration of nature!" and "The photos and poems left me feeling warmly peaceful and grateful for the wonders of this world! Beautifully done!"
The library is located at 301 N. Washington St. in Hendersonville. The event is free.
Ruthie photographs trees because she loves them.
