Prescott Gibbons’ Walden Pond Series

About the Artist

As I was growing up in the town of Lincoln (~ 1965 – 1975), I spent many happy hours in and around Walden Pond. While I was at Milton Academy and Bowdoin College, I visited Walden often when I came home on weekends and vacations. And soon after college, when I was living in Cambridge, I continued my visits and started my Walden Series of paintings.

  • In 1989, I became a member of the Copley Society and started exhibiting my Walden paintings there and in other galleries around the Boston area.
  • In 2002, I had a solo exhibit of my Walden paintings in the gift shop gallery at Walden Pond.
  • In 2002, I started what became an ongoing exhibit of my Walden paintings at the Walden Woods Project/Thoreau Institute.
  • In 2010, images of all my Walden paintings were put into the permanent archives of the Walden Woods Project/Thoreau Institute.

I feel my appreciation for Walden in a variety of ways: By walking in the woods and swimming in the pond, by reading Thoreau (and Emerson), by making paintings and writing books.

And I like to share my appreciation by exhibiting my paintings and publishing my books.
