The Henderson Cultural Center at Hunt Hill Farm presents writer Davyne Verstandig, our first Artist-in-Residence, as part of a new residency program for 2009. Davyne will give an Artist Talk at 3 p.m. during her stay at Hunt Hill Farm in the Silo Gallery.
Davyne Verstandig is a lecturer in English and Creative Writing at the UConn Torrington Campus. She is also director of the Litchfield County Writers Project. She is a member of the Aetna Advisory Board and the Creative Writing Committee at the University of Connecticut. Davyne has published two books of poetry, Pieces of the Whole and Provisions. Pieces of the Whole was produced as a mixed media verse play at Theaterworks in New Milford, Ct. and at The Sherman Playhouse.
The artist-in-residence program was newly created this year to give artists the chance to focus solely on their work in a peaceful and inspirational atmosphere. Selection was based on quality of work, interest in a Hunt Hill Farm residency and plan of work while in residency. The talk is free.
