Alexis Doshas “The Natural Order of Things” in Crowell March Exhibit

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.”

Gallery hours:
Tues., Wed., Fri., 1:00 – 5:00 p.m., Thurs., 2:00 – 7:00 pm., Sat.10:00 – 1 pm

Write For Your Life!

Dear Writers,
The Moore Free Library in Newfane is offering Write For Your Life!, a memoir-writing workshop led by Deborah Lee Luskin. The workshop will meet at the Library for six sessions from 1pm-3pm on Fridays: March 10 & 24; April 7 & 21; May 5 & 19.
During these sessions, Deborah Lee Luskin will lead participants in writing exercises geared to stir memory by providing guided meditations for timed writing exercises. We will use positive techniques that encourage participants to write freely, to listen fully, and to dig deeply to find meaning and assign shape to the stories of their lives.
Supported by a Small and Inspiring grant from the Vermont Community Foundation, the class is free. Class size is limited, and registration is required. To register, please contact Librarian Louise Sirois at 365-7948 or moorefreelibrary@gmail.com

Author Castle Freeman Jr. to speak at the Library


On February 14th, Tuesday, from 1pm to 3pm,  Newfane local and author Castle Freeman will read excerpts from several of his entertaining Vermont tales written over the years.

Castle is the award-winning author of the acclaimed novel Go With Me, which was made into a major motion picture in 2016, as well as the writer of numerous other novels (most recently “The Devil in the Valley”), short stories, and essays.

Castle found his muse when he moved to Vermont:  “Practically all the writing I have done—fiction, essays, history, journalism, and more—has been in one way or another about rural northern New England, in particular the State of Vermont, and the lives of its inhabitants, a source of unique and undiminishing interest, at least to me.” 

castlefreeman_imageThe talk will take place in the Crowell Gallery and light refreshments will be available.
