History and art lovers alike will enjoy Conrad Young’s latest book, New Hampshire’s Historical Covered Bridges. This book is the culmination of ten years of researching and painting various NH covered bridges and consists of eleven 10” x 8” watercolor paintings and a black and white ink drawing of the oldest NH bridge, the Bath-Haverhill. It also includes a NH location map and information on the 54 state-recognized bridges.
Conrad Young considers himself blessed to have grown up on farms throughout New Hampshire. Vivid memories bring him back to the years spent in the woods and hayfields with his father who made a living as a farmer, logger, blacksmith, and horse breeder. These memories also instilled a passion for the rural scenes portrayed in his watercolors with their unique lighting, composition, and colors.
Conrad Young’s book can be found at Lakes Region Art Association Gallery at the Tanger Outlets in Tilton, Covered Bridge Gallery in Contoocook, Hopkinton Historical Society, Warner Historical Society, Cardigan Country Store in Bristol, Concord Photo Service, or by calling Conrad Young at 603.224.6361.
