The Crowell Gallery is pleased to exhibit recent drawings and paintings of Mohammed Daoudi. Mr. Daoudi was born in 1958 and grew up in Tangier, Morocco. After graduating high school he attended Skidmore College and Columbia University. Daoudi moved to Seattle in 1985 where he decided to make art the main focus of his life. Ten years later, Daoudi and his wife moved to East Dummerston where he continues to make art.

As a self-taught artist, who was brought up as a muslim, is married to a jewish woman and lives in the west, Mohammed finds himself gravitating mostly toward subject matter that delves into such nuanced and complex cultural characteristics. Daoudi attempts to reconcile these nuances in his work by borrowing and taking from both the western artistic tradition and the rich moroccan cultural palette. This approach as well as the current political climate manifest themselves in his recent work on canvas and paper.

Mohammed Daoudi has exhibited in Seattle, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Recently at Keene State’s Carroll House Gallery. His artwork can be found in private collections from San Diego to Munich.

Gallery hours Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 1-5pm, Thursday 2-7pm and Saturday 10am-1pm.
Free and open to the public.
