The Art of Climbing: Art Show with Slide Show by Mark Synnott is coming to the Salyards Center for the Arts on November 9, 2007. Proceeds from the event, featuring artwork and literature with climbing themes, will benefit Kismet Rock Foundation and the newly renovated Salyards Center for the Arts. The evening will begin at 6:00 at Salyards Center for the Arts, located at 110 Main Street, Conway, NH next to the Conway Historical Society and across the street from the town park. Featured work will have a distinct slant towards the culture of climbing. At 7:30, world renowned The North Face athlete Mark Synnott, a long time local to the Mount Washington Valley, will present a slideshow about his globe-spanning adventures.
