The Crowell Gallery at the Moore Free Library Presents:
“The Natural Order of Things”
A photographic exhibit by Alexis Doshas, March 3rd – 31st.
Reception March 4th, 1-3 pm.
“For this exhibit, The Natural Order of Things, I selected images that explore my belief that humans are a part of nature and are inseparable from it. It is where we come from and where we return. What has emerged in my images is the intimacy of life and land. I look beyond the seductive and picturesque landscapes for the honest, quirky, and sincere in the world; however difficult or un-pretty- so we can begin to recognize and appreciate the intimacy in our own personal landscapes.
I’m interested in mixing old world and new world techniques. I work with pinhole cameras made from tins, a 1950’s model Rolleiflex, a Kodak Brownie, and more recently a Hasselblad 501c; cyanotype and van dyke printing processes as well as archival inkjet prints from film and paper negatives. I work out of my home studio at the base of the Green Mountains in Wardsboro, VT.”
Tues., Wed., Fri., 1:00 – 5:00 p.m., Thurs., 2:00 – 7:00 pm., Sat.10:00 – 1 pm

“To Watch, To Wait and To Wonder: Works in Clay”, a show partnering ceramic artists Susan Wilson and Anna Koloseike will be on exhibit in the Crowell Gallery from September 1 to 29. Opening reception will be on Saturday, September 3rd from 3pm to 6pm. As always, Crowell Gallery exhibits are free and open to the public.
Susan Wilson’s work in clay has always been about finding her place in the world. Using figurative imagery she creates a narrative of connections to her secrets, dreams, fears and hopes.
Anna Koloseike’s figurative sculptures explore themes of our shared human experience imbued with ironic humor, inviting the audience to identify, reflect, and question.
Both artists have common backgrounds teaching art and are well known and respected in galleries across the country. Susan joins us from her studio in Putney, Vermont while Anna’s studio is a bit further away in Asheville, North Carolina.

A dialog between realism and abstraction
Steve Lloyd ~ Vermont resident and Brattleboro artist ~ will show his paintings in the Crowell Art Gallery in Newfane from May 3rd to 31st. The Opening Reception will be on Saturday, May 7th from 11am to 1pm. “My paintings depict the way the world feels to me. In representational work I will add an element of geometry; in abstract work, the rigor of the geometry is balanced by color and the nature of the paint. A long career as an architect surely influences my work, but an equal force is my respect for the natural world.”
Access to the Gallery and Library are FREE.
Mark your calendars Erinophiles!
On March 17 – yes, that is Saint Patrick’s Day – Vincent Feeney will present
“The Irish Wave in the Green Mountains”.
This FREE program will start at 5pm in the Crowell Gallery and is co-hosted by Moore Free Library and Windham County Historical Society.
Mr. Feeney is the author of Finnigans, Slaters and Stonepeggers, a history of the Irish in Vermont (which we have at the library) which peels back the Yankee mythos and examines the surprisingly rich, true story of the Irish in Vermont, from the first steady trickle of colonial pioneers to the flood of famine refugees and onward: how the Irish arrived, survived, fought, labored, organized, worshipped, played and managed to prosper. Even if you don’t have a bit of Irish blood in you, this will be a fascinating presentation.
This program is sponsored by Vermont Humanities Council.
