October Art Show: Greg Moschetti
Oct 2 @ 1:00 pm – Oct 31 @ 5:00 pm
October Art Show: Greg Moschetti

Land, Water and Sky”, an exhibition of oil paintings by Greg Moschetti,

will be on display through October at the Crowell Gallery at Moore Free Library, 23 West St.
The gallery will host a reception outside on Saturday, October 3 from noon to 2 PM.
Moschetti, who lives and paints in Dummerston, came to painting relatively late in life and finds
significant joy in the creative process and its outcomes. He feels that painting is a spiritual endeavor
and that the role of the artist is to elicit a sense of spirit in the viewer as was felt by the artist in
creating a work.

“While some of my paintings are of places that exist in real life, most are imagined landscapes
with atmospheric portent. These often involve sunrises or sunsets in open landscapes with reflective
water. They have a sense of familiarity about them and, when successful, draw the viewer into a
feeling of peaceful solitude.”

“More recently, I’ve turned to simpler paintings of land masses at sea, some quite colorful and
others using a primarily gray palette. For me these paintings still have the feel of solitude and spiritual
portent although they are visually quite different. This series started in the studio, but was later
inspired by trips to Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and Newfoundland where the stark contrasts of stone,
water and sky captured my imagination.”

Moschetti is primarily self-taught. He has studied with Dennis Sheehan, America’s foremost
tonalist painter, and with Jason Alden at the River Gallery School and The Drawing Studio in
Brattleboro. He has exhibited at various venues in the greater Brattleboro area and is a member of Brattleboro West Arts.
