Reinventing The Wheel: My Spiritual Journey Through Portals, Passages and Poetry

November 12 - December 23

“This exhibit is an attempt to combine my art and poetry.  They both speak of journeys, seasons, and dreams.”         -Annie Prescott

Exhibit: Saturday, Nov. 12–Friday, Dec. 23
Reception: Saturday, Nov. 12 at 1 p.m.

Ann Prescot fell in love with color and texture at an early age.  She attended Sacred Hearts Academy through high school and then studied English and Art at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.  After graduation in 1973, she became an English teacher at Durfee High School.

After a career of 35 years, she retired in 2008.  She then had a studio at the Narrows Center for the Arts for 4½ years.  She and her husband Frank then opened a store in her hometown of Somerset.  After the closing of the store in 2020, she continued to pursue both her art and writing in her home studio looking out over the Taunton River.  She published her first book of poetry in 2022 and this is her first gallery exhibit.
