Dorset Library to present new photo exhibit

DORSET - The Dorset Village Library will present photographer Seline Skoug at a public reception on Saturday, May 3. The free reception will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and all works will be for sale with proceeds benefiting the library.

Seline Skoug began shooting photos 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. Skoug's photographs are notable for their sensitive treatment of light and lyrical sense of humor. In 2012, one of her photographs was awarded an honorable mention by Horticulture Magazine. Her winning photo, taken in Sunderland, Vt, was chosen from 8,000 photos.

Skoug lives in Arlington. She is executive director of Southern Vermont Arts Center. 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.

Skoug's show will extend through the month of May. For more information, contact the library at 802-867-5774 or visit the website at www.dorset
