The 11th biennial exhibit of the Willamette Valley PhotoArts Guild features over 90 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 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.
The LaSells Stewart Center is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and evenings during scheduled events.
