Main Street, Barre).  This show of handprinted silverprint photographs is on view through August 10, 2018.  There will be an opening reception on Thurs., May 24, 5:30-6:30PM. Orah Moore is a classically trained fine art photographer and founding member of Women in Photography, a national organization. She has worked in commercial photography since 1977 including a position as a publicity photographer for PBS. She is the founder of Haymaker Press. According to Orah, “I have been studying the lifestyle of Montana ranchers, from the romantic to the mundane. I am interested in the spirit that impels them, the land that nurtures them, the storms they weather, and the livestock that supports their way of life.”

Through Aug. 25: Colorful Musings by Rob Hitzig at Axel’s Gallery and Frame Shop. Titled “Colorful Musings,” Rob’s work explores the surprising interactions of colors and shapes through geometric abstraction. Although not easily categorized, the art rides a mysterious line between the painting and sculpture — while some pieces have physical depth, all the work, even pieces that are completely flat, have visual depth. Rob is inspired by wonder and curiosity, seeking to discover what happens when things just happen, with the hope that the work generates the same experience for the viewer. An Artist Reception is planned for Friday, July 13th from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. Axel’s Gallery and Frame Shop is open Tuesday – Friday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm and Saturdays 10:00 – 4:00 pm. Images from work in the show attached.
