Nicki Steel new photography exhibit opens

WILMINGTON — Bartleby's Books is hosting its annual exhibit of Nicki Steel photography for the month of February starting today, Feb. 1. Steel with be showcasing a new series "Love and Loons," as well as her "Hearts in Nature" series. Nicki became interested in loons and learned that three decades ago Vermont had only seven pairs of nesting loons, but this past year there were 90 pairs in Vermont. She started following a pair and a chick on Lake Raponda beginning in April and observed them from the shore, from a kayak and even while swimming.

Steel's "Hearts in Nature" series of notecards, photo collages, matted and framed pieces, and mini-mats are always bestsellers. There are several new images this year including new breeds of cows with hearts and a broad-tailed hawk with heart-shaped feathers on its leg. Meet Steel and see a slideshow of the loons at Bartleby's on Feb. 10 at 4 p.m. as part of the Apres-Ski After Three program organized by Wilmington Works.

Bartleby's Books is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located at 17 West Main St., Wilmington. For questions, call 802-464-5425 or visit
