Lunch & Learn Lecture Series: Collaboration and the Creative Process: Noyes Capehart and Peter Petschauer

Event date: 
Wednesday, July 18, 2018 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Writer and collector Peter Petschauer teams up with artist-writer Noyes Capehart for this fun and fascinating glimpse into the process of writing novels and poetry, while exploring the ways in which collaboration can create a stronger and more meaningful artistic outcome. In 1971 Capehart first explored the incorporation of brief written passages on his paintings. More recently, he experimented with writing about his favorite subject, art. The outcome is a set of two novels that have been well received. Capehart’s latest book, scheduled for release in the summer of 2018, is Cheap Joe, the life story of Boone’s own Joe Miller. He will share his excitement about the discipline of writing. His insights will be complemented by Peter Petschauer’s experiences with writing. Petschauer came to novel and poetry writing through the explorations in numerous historical topics and the collection of art. His novel about an aspiring 18th century German artist continues to find interested readers. He too will explore his experience as a novelist – which requires different skills than his historical training provided. The two authors worked closely with each other to create these “perfect” outcomes. Their intention is to explore first their approaches to writing, then to their cooperation, and finally to ask the audience to dig deeper into the topic through questions and comments.
