SKETCHBOOK ODYSSEY

Neolithic France to Newfoundland

Journeying with a camera and sketchbook, Professor Diane Pugen visited Brittany and later Newfoundland during her sabbatical.  In Brittany, she was surprised and fascinated to find many remnants of Neolithic structures abounding in the land and was compelled to search them and explore their meanings. In Newfoundland, the rugged earth felt like her home and she embraced it.  Professor Pugen recorded numerous  places and began a larger site specific drawing which remains unfinished; the land is calling her to return.
