Herbert Ogden Waters exhibit now in Special Collections and Archives
UNH Special Collections and the University Museum present a hallway exhibit of the work of Herbert Odgen Waters. The exhibit includes seven prints from Special Collections and examples of the artist’s wood blocks, a loan from the UNH Museum of Art.
Herbert Ogden Waters was born in Shantou, China in 1903 and was the son of Baptist missionaries. Since 1933, except for a brief period of war service in a Providence shipyard, Herbert and his wife Bertha Waters made their home in New Hampshire. Waters lived in Warner, NH as an artist and art teacher from 1936 to 1941 in the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project. Later, he taught at the University of New Hampshire, at Holderness School in Plymouth, and at Alderson-Broaddus College in Phillipi, West Virginia.
Throughout a long career, Waters refined his printmaking techniques, especially in wood engraving, and explored the intimate and grand landscapes of New Hampshire from his home in Campton, NH.
The Herbert Ogden Waters exhibit will run through the summer.
Milne Special Collections/Archives/ University Museum is open Monday through Friday from 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm during the summer. They are located on Level 1 in Dimond Library. For information call (603) 862-1081.
