This exhibit features about 100 black-and-white and color photographs that interpret the closing lines of one of the most enduring poems by one of America's most beloved poets--“The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost.  The 26 photographers participating in the exhibit were asked to take a look “off the beaten path” in response to the poem's final stanza:

                   Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

                   I took the one less traveled by,

                   And that has made all the difference.  

The photographers responded with a surprisingly broad range of imagery, from literal depictions of untrammeled paths and passageways, to metaphorical images about choices and new directions, as well as examples of new turns in their own personal artistic journeys.

The Willamette Valley PhotoArts Guild was formed more than 30 years ago to promote and support fine art photography in the mid-valley and has been an affiliated guild of the Corvallis Art Center since 1988. This is the 11th in its series of biennial expositions at The LaSells Stewart Center that explore the photogenic possibilities in their own backyard and beyond.

Information about the PhotoArts Guild can be found on their website: www.photoartsguild.org

Exhibit comes down mid-morning on January 27.
