Romania – A Photographic Journey Along the Carpathian Arc

 The Crowell Gallery invites you to take a virtual trip along the Carpathian mountains in the north of Romania and then southward to the great east-west wall of the Transylvanian Alps. Come travel with photographer Gene Parulis as he guides you through an inspiring odyssey of striking landscapes that bear the signs of a rebirth after a long period of turbulence.  “I was happy to witness a Romania beginning to prosper. I encountered a proud, skilled, resilient and beautiful rural culture with a noticeably vibrant spiritual dimension. The images I have selected are an attempt to showcase these features. Landscape, people, art, craft, architecture and a sense of spirit, both real and imagined, constitute the subjects of this exhibition.”

Gene Parulis has been traveling, teaching, and photographing around the world since the early 1970s. He has exhibited in numerous galleries and collaborated with  writers in diverse fields from anthropology to gardening and spirituality. He is currently an instructor at the Community College of Vermont.

Free admission.

GALLERY HISTORY – In 2000, (the now late) Robert Crowell and his wife Muriel Crowell funded the renovation of the Moore’s 1890 post & beam barn to create the Crowell Art  Gallery. In 2004 tensor lighting was installed as a gift from the Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason Foundation.

The Crowell Art Gallery is accessed through the Moore Free Library and it showcases the incredible talent and diversity of artists in our local communities.  From January to February the Library exhibits its permanent collection of works by southern Vermont artists, purchased and selected by Robert & Muriel Crowell. Each month thereafter features a different exhibitor, usually with an opening reception.
