“All the Good Dogs” Exhibit Now at Hanford Mills Museum

Hanford Mills Museum

 A new exhibit at Hanford Mills Museum shows how dogs live and work in Delaware County. Created by artist and poet Bertha Rogers, “All the Good Dogs: Images & Words in Two & Three Dimensions,” includes poems, paintings, illuminations, and artist's books and boxes. The interdisciplinary exhibit was inspired by discussions Ms. Rogers had with farmers, law enforcement officials, people who have assistance and therapy dogs, local veterinarians, dog trainers, and people who care for unwanted and abandoned dogs.

The special exhibit, which is included with regular Museum admission, will be on view in the Hardware Store September 8 – October 14.

A reception and reading by Bertha Rogers will be held on Sunday, September 29 at 2 pm. One limited edition Dog Card with poem will be given to each attendee. The reading and reception are free and open to all. Leashed dogs are welcome.
Bertha Rogers's poems appear in journals, print and online anthologies, and in her collections, Heart Turned Back, The Fourth Beast, A House of Corners, and Sleeper, You Wake. She has received fellowships to the MacDowell Colony, the Millay Colony, Hawthornden International Writers Retreat, and others. She lives near Treadwell, NY, in the Catskills.
