NEWFANE — For its November exhibit, the Crowell Gallery at Moore Free Library, 23 West St., presents “Ricia Gordon - The Language of Color and Form.”

A reception for the Brattleboro artist will be held on Saturday, Nov. 6, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

For the past 11 years, Gordon explored the world of abstract painting with oils. She says that for her, it was all about the process of painting, the challenges, and the excitement she experienced in her studio. She understood what she wanted to say and expressed that in color and form.

“My paintings draw from the colors, lines, and forms in the world around me, from ongoing projects or ideas, or simply from what emerges in the process of putting down paint,” Gordon said in a news release.

“I frequently work in series, exploring various approaches to address a particular form or idea,” she continued. “I like reminding myself these are just paintings on canvas, the drips and shapes serving not to represent but to play against representation.”

The gallery is open during library hours - Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m., Thursdays from 1 to 6 p.m., and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
