The Arts

Erickson exhibit held over at Crowell Gallery

NEWFANE—The Crowell Gallery at Moore Free Library, 23 West St., is extending the exhibit of Newfane artist C. Peter Erickson, “On the Way By: Painting En Passant” through February, allowing additional opportunities to see an unusual exhibit that combines a unique airbrush technique with popular images.

In his artist statement, Erickson says he applies en passant, the original French chess definition of “passing through” to his art, “establishing the world’s impermanence, its placement neither here nor there, but somewhere along the way.” His work can also be found at

The Crowell Gallery is open during library hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays, 2 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The library maintains strict adherence to COVID-19 guidelines and limits the number of patrons to 10.
