Nan Scheffel Morse
Nancy Morse retired almost 6 years ago to her beloved Adirondacks and became captivated by the rich emerging art world here in the North Country.
While the graphic arts were not her profession, she has expressed herself for years through her poetry which she shared only with family and friends. She believes the union of art and words to a blend.
Words are musings to and from the mind and when coupled with art and images the two can become powerful.
She is honored to be a part of the transformation.

Roger Mitchell is the author of thirteen books of poetry and a book of non-fiction, for the latter of which, Clear Pond: The Reconstruction of a Life, he was made an Honorary Citizen of the Town of North Hudson, Essex County, New York.
He also won the Class B Gold Medal in Downhill at the Lake Placid Winter Carnival in either 1949 or 1950, he can’t remember which. Between and among these accomplishments, he has identified almost every kind of bird that passes through or resides in Monroe County, Indiana, where he professed English for 24 years.
He has stood at the top of Mount Snowdon in Wales, the tallest mountain in the British Isles. He has walked down into an extinct volcano on Maui, he has eaten squid, and he can still recite his U.S. Army serial number. From memory.
