Liz Hawkes deNiord: Edges, a New show of abstract paintings
Crowell Gallery, Newfane, Vermont
July 5-30, 2022

Artist reception and poetry reading by former Vermont state
poet laureate, Chard deNiord, July 16, 3-4:30


The Crowell Gallery presents a collection of Liz Hawkes deNiord’s new “right off the easel” paintings, along with selected pieces from past few years. Metaphorical edges exist per painting, addressing boundaries of images and of imagination. As the show’s title Edges suggests, the paintings reference by translation “crossing to the other side” in thought or practice in Paramita I and Paramita III. Note From the Universe series suggests edges of the unknowable Universe(s) with unfathomable distances as well as the infinitesimally, smallest thing. This show is also arranged to present luminous colors speaking across edges and ideas, referencing one painting to the next. Edges become permeable and connected.

Liz Hawkes deNiord’s second show at Crowell Gallery showcases new work as well as recent paintings connected thematically. Hawkes deNiord shows regionally and after 38 years teaching art and ceramics, she enjoys the daily challenge of engaging visually with ideas and the discipline of pushing each new work through transformative stages. A reception will be held on August 16th at which Vermont’s former Poet Laureate Chard deNiord will read to us from his recent works. Join the artist and her husband from 3pm – 4:30 in the gallery on the 16th.
