Canfield to Show Works by Photographer Seline Skoug
Seline Skoug’s photographs are notable for their sensitive treatment of light and lyrical sense of humor. The exhibit at the Martha Canfield Library’s Canfield Gallery in Arlington will highlight Skoug’s work which captures the beauty of winter light. There will be a reception with the artist on Saturday, March 5, from 3 to 5 p.m. The show will run through Wednesday, March 30. Skoug began shooting pictures as a young woman during her travels from Norway to Vermont. Her work iss shaped by her appreciation of the natural world and a love of people and community. She cites her family’s paintings, which hang in the National Gallery of Norway and the support of artists in the Battenkill Valley as her influences. Her work has been shown group and solo exhibitions in Vermont and New York, and has been recognized by Horticulture Magazine and the American Alliance of Museums. She will be traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo in May to interview and photograph students at an environmental technical college deep in the rainforest. Skoug is a resident of Arlington.
