DORSET - The featured Artist at the Dorset Public Library during the month of January will be the photographer Seline Skoug.

The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception on Saturday, Jan. 5 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Refreshments will be served. All works are for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the library.

Skoug's photographs are notable for their sensitive treatment of light and lyrical sense of humor. She began shooting pictures as a young woman during her travels from Long Island Sound to Norway to the Adirondacks to the beaches of St. Croix and 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. In 2012, one of her photographs was awarded an honorable mention by Horticulture Magazine. Her winning photo taken in Sunderland was chosen from 8,000 photos.

She currently lives in Arlington. She is a consultant and managing partner of Skoug Group LLC, a non-profit consulting firm. She is on the board of Meals on Wheels of Bennington County and an A-EMT with the Arlington and Manchester Rescue Squads. She is also a volunteer fly-fishing instructor with Casting for Recovery.

Library hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information call 802-867-5774 or visit the Web site at www.dorsetlibrary.org.
