The Crowell Gallery

Artist Reception : Saturday February 3rd, 1-3 pm AND Thursday, March 29th, 7-8pm
The Crowell Gallery exhibits the photography of David Parker in his “Around the Pond” series this February. For naturalists, birders and those who enjoy the out of doors, this show will delight and inform. Parker’s experience as an educator is evident in the narrative of each image. Local wildlife in over 50 images, some as large as 20”x30”, display their color, habitat and personality. Visitors will see fuzzy water fowl chicks mature to full mating dress; chatty wrens and itinerant warblers; carnivorous hawks and the shy, elusive Bittern. Also present in this acre of water are river otter, mink, and the masterful beaver, without who this pond life would not exist. Looking for a bit of summer? “Around the Pond” will take the chill out of February.
Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 1 to 5 pm, Thursday 2 to 7 pm, Saturday 10 to 1 pm
Beautiful quilts! Please stop by and take a look.

Dennis Waring will present “From Trash to Tunes ”
Using a wide array of instruments, indigenous and homemade, Waring weaves fun fascinating tales of the origin of music and how all cultures through time utilized their natural environments for making fantastic sound-making devices. Evocative instruments like the bull roarer, mouth bow, animal horn, sea shell trumpet, and bamboo flute, for instance, are universal in range. The most distinctive characteristic of Waring’s show is that he has made most all the instruments he demonstrates. Each instrument, either because of its particular sound, design idea, or special symbolic dimension, has its own special story.
This program is a demonstration/performance of almost fifty handmade/ homemade musical instruments based on ideas and inspirations from around the world. Interesting sights, sounds and stories provide the audience with new awareness into folklore, music, craft, science, and world view.” From Trash to Tunes ” is a free program for all ages and makes a great family event.
