CAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - This year’s artist-in-residence program in the White Mountains National Forest is dedicated to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

The forest and the Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire say poet, teacher, and photographer Susie O’Keeffe has been chosen as the artist in residence for 2014.

O’Keeffe serves as a research associate and adjunct professor at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine.

O’Keeffe will spend three weeks in the wilderness starting in mid-August, with exact dates for her residency and community and public programs to be announced in July.

“We are delighted to welcome Susie, whose work is very much focused on the exploration of wild places,” said Marianne Leberman of the forest-alliance partnership. “We think her exploration will find the perfect venue in the forest.”

Her work, “Art of Reciprocity,” looks at how consciousness is deepened through unique, individual experiences that can’t be reproduced, repeated, or imposed.
