March 2020 - Ross Bachelder
The Rochester Public Library is pleased to present the artwork of Ross Bachelder during the month of March.
Bachelder's current exhibition, Ripe for the Picking: Works in Several Media and Many Moods is an eclectic mix that demonstrates his many talents. Bachelder has been active in the fine and performing arts in Seacoast New Hampshire, Southern Maine, and elsewhere in northern New England for more than 40 years. He's exhibited drawings, paintings, found object assemblages, and photographs in galleries in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.
In 2016 Bachelder published his first book, Happy Dawg Walks the Sad Man: The Remarkably Varied Adventures of a Confirmed Arts Multiple. His second book of short stories entitled Revenge: Tales Best Read in the Twilight Hours is scheduled for publication in May, 2020. He's now working on a third book- a playful picaresque novel that promises to show abundant evidence of the author's untamable curiosity and sense of the absurd.
