WEST BRATTLEBORO -- The foyer gallery and other exhibit spaces at All Souls Church are hosting a retrospective of work by painter Maisie Crowther through February.

"Ephemeral Observations" is a compilation of works in several media and spanning 50 years. They include drawings and watercolors made while traveling and living in Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Iceland and the U.S.

The Arts Committee of All Souls invites the public to an opening artist’s reception on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. (snow date is Sunday). A refreshment table complements this opportunity to speak with Crowther about her work and creative process. Otherwise, the exhibit is open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., as well as during Sunday worship services and other public events in the building.

A native of Massachusetts, Mary "Maisie" Goodale Crowther has been a resident of Brattleboro since 1966.

Crowther has been an art instructor of children and adults since 1972. Since 1990, she has coordinated the Brattleboro Senior Water-based Media Workshop. She has exhibited her watercolors throughout New England since 1973. Her work was featured at Stratton Mountain Art Festivals in the 1980s; at Windham Art Gallery, where she was a charter member, from 1989 to 1996; for 15 years at Art on the Mountain in Wilmington and at Art in the Barn in Essex, Mass.
