Artsbridge blends two art forms

“The Lightning Field” is by Therese Halscheid.

In celebration of April’s National Poetry Month, Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artists Series presents “The Blending of Two Art Forms: A Woman’s Journey.”

Therese Halscheid will share her journey of blending photography and poetry, at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19, at the Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler St., Stockton, N.J.

Her photography chronicles her itinerant lifestyle. For years, house-sitting has allowed her to write and photograph in unusual and rustic settings.

Her River Towns photographic series represents nature’s ability to form artistic compositions. Many photographs document weather and its effect on the Wickecheoke Creek and surrounding woods and watersheds in Stockton, N.J. The play of sun and shadow, snow, and early morning fog captures the mystical elements of such a place.

Recent work focuses on the abstract qualities of earth, and has expanded to include many river towns hugging both sides of the Delaware.

Her photography has been in several juried exhibitions, among them Stover Mill Gallery, Noyes Museum, New Hope Historical Society, Artsbridge exhibitions, and New Hope Arts Juried exhibitions.

The author of five poetry collections, Halscheid’s most recent book, “Frozen Latitudes” (Press 53), won an Eric Hoffer Book Award. Her poetry and lyric essays have appeared in numerous literary magazines.

A recipient of fellowships and contest awards, her writing is inspired by her simplistic lifestyle – journeys that have taken her from a Florida swamp to the arctic north of Alaska, where she lived with, and taught poetry to, an Eskimo Inupiaq tribe.
