Art of Susan Wilson & Anna Koloseike in the Crowell Gallery for September

“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.

Please call the Moore Free Library for further information or contact the gallery us at crowellartgallery@gmail.com.

Would you like to write a Memoir?

The Moore Free Library would like to offer a Memoir Writing Workshop for those who want a chance to reflect on and write about the key moments of their lives.

In a supportive environment, writer and educator Deborah Lee Luskin will lead participants in writing exercises geared to stirring 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.

Deborah Lee Luskin is an award-winning novelist, a prolific essayist and a seasoned educator. She has taught literature and writing to a wide spectrum of learners and has been a Visiting Scholar for the Vermont Humanities Council for over thirty years.

Please email Louise Sirois at moorefreelibrary@gmail.com to indicate your interest in joining this group.  We need a minimum number to launch the workshop and we hope to start these sessions by January 2017.
