Current Artist Residencies
Courtney Bent, Photographer
In October 2015, New Hampshire photographer Courtney Bent returned to Crotched Mountain for a three-week residency. Crotched Mountain students worked with Bent over the three-week period to capture their experiences of the world around them through photography. Students participated in a variety of activities and assignments including exploring what they consider beautiful or interesting, capturing images from unique angles and studying interesting ways light falls on objects. The results of their efforts were displayed at Crotched Mountain and featured in an exhibit at the Monadnock Center of History and Culture, Peterborough, NH, titled "New Views from the Mountain."
The Courtney Bent Artist-in-Residency program and related events were made possible by the generosity of the Putnam Foundation and the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
