THE ENDLESS MOUNTAINS SPIRIT: M.C. Richards & Paulus Berensohn
Mar 21, 2015 – May 08, 2015
A synergetic nexus of the arts occurred in Susquehanna County when clay artists and teachers Mary Caroline Richards and Paulus Berensohn lived and worked in Northeast Pennsylvania. During that time an influx of artists, dancers, writers, and actors visited and worked at the Endless Mountains Farm, a cooperative and a place of creative energy. Iconic books are associated with the Farm –– Towards Wholenessand The Crossing Point: Selected Talks and Writings by M.C. Richards and Paulus Berensohn’sFinding One’s Way With Clay.
