Current Art Exhibit:
Currently on view is Halloween, Chelsea Vermont 2001, a collection of photographs by Nick DeFriez. The exhibition runs through October and will culminate in a closing reception/Halloween party at the library on October 31st from 4:00 - 6:00 PM.
On Halloween night in 2001, on the front porch of a friend’s house in downtown Chelsea, Nick DeFriez set out an old garbage barrel with a speaker playing scary sounds of hornets buzzing hidden in the bottom. He put candy on a shelf above the speakers, thinking it would make the trick or treaters think twice before they reached in. The photographs were taken with a flash camera to illuminate the bright and colorful costumes of the trick or treaters against the dark spooky night. Nick DeFriez is a long time Chelsea resident and has been an artist and woodworker for many years. He earned his MA in studio art from Hunter College and a BS in art education from the University of Vermont.
