Acclaimed for his emotionally-charged landscapes, Craig Mooney's paintings draw viewers into scenes of mystery that awaken memories and feelings of previously experienced times and places. With this body of work, Mooney expands his horizons with forays into pieces based on rural structures and the human figure. Highly textured and imbued with an innate feeling of motion, the paintings impart an inherent ambiguity that bridges both the impressionist and abstract worlds.

Sought by collectors worldwide, Craig Mooney's shows are highly anticipated events. He has recently been the subject of solo shows in London and Milan and has been profiled in American Art Collector magazine.

Gallery North Star, located in historic Grafton, Vermont, is dedicated to presenting a diverse selection of work by Vermont's and New England's finest artists in a unique setting. The gallery is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm.
