ARLINGTON >> Seline Skoug's photographs are notable for their sensitive treatment of light and lyrical sense of humor. This exhibit highlights the beauty of our winter light revealing so many colors in our everyday palette. Join others at the Martha Canfield Library's Canfield Gallery in Arlington on Saturday, March 5, from 3-5 p.m. for a meet-the-artist reception.The show will run through March 30.
SKOUG began shooting pictures as a young woman during her travels from Norway to the rivers and mountains of Vermont. Along the way, her work was shaped by her appreciation of the natural world and love of people and community. Many influences and perspectives to her photography come from her family whose paintings hang in the National Gallery of Norway plus the influences and support from artists in the Battenkill Valley.
She has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in Vermont and New York and her photographs are in private homes and offices around the country. Her work has been recognized by Horticulture Magazine, and the American Alliance of Museums. In May, she will be traveling to the Democratic Republic of Congo to interview and photograph students at an environmental technical college deep in the rainforest.
She lives in a 19th century farmhouse along the Battenkill in Arlington and shares a design and consulting office with her husband Dave Van de Water. www.skoug.photography, www.artifactusa.com.
