Gail Salzman Exhibits at Bent Northrop Library in Fairfield

Fairfield’s Gail Salzman will be the featured artist this summer in the town’s Bent Northrop Memorial Library. The exhibit, Undercurrents, June 13 – August 12, presents a series of works on paper exploring energy and movement in the natural world, or “what lies beneath the surface.” Salzman is primarily a painter working in oils; her work has been exhibited widely for over 25 years. This exhibit showcases work from 2001, a time when her art was undergoing a thematic  transition from figurative to her now distinctive abstract mode. She completed the “monotype/collage” series by creating many different prints on a large etching press, and then combining them into new images. The work was supported in part by the VT Arts Endowment Fund in 2000.

BNM Library, 164 Park St in Fairfield, hosted a reception for the artist on Thursday July 19, 6-7:30pm, when Gail gave an informal talk about her work and creative process at 7pm.

Library hours are Mon 2:30-5, Tues 2:30-8, Wed 9-5, Thurs 2:30-8, Fri 9-5, Sat 9-1.
