Exhibit open May 13th-June 10th

Gallery Talk- Saturday, June 10th at Noon


This photographic exhibit of ten framed images honors Henry Beston, and his iconic book, The Outermost House. The chapters in Beston’s memoir follow the seasons, describing the forces of nature he experienced during those months. Each of the ten images was selected to bring one chapter of the book to life.

The photographs were captured along The Great Beach - Beston’s playground, and in Eastham, not far from where the Outermost House once stood. The title of each picture was composed using Beston’s poetic words and phrases from the respective chapter. The exhibit will be on display starting May 13th at 11:00am. It will close with a gallery talk on June 10th, where the Dune Tramp, Robby McQueeney, will discuss each photograph, and read passages from The Outermost House, which correspond to the images.
