Moylan is a master of the lush medium of gouache, creating elegant and serene landscapes in a distinctive and highly personal color palette. A resident of Waterford, N.Y., his subjects lie primarily in the rural villages surrounding the Battenkill River in Washington and Rensselaer counties of New York. In the tradition of the Hudson River School, luminous sunsets and dramatic skies ride above farm houses, barns, silos and fields that serve as reminders of the human existence within these natural settings. Painstakingly rendered with intricate detail, Moylan’s pieces convey a view that is both vast and expansive.

The Gallery is open during library hours: Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 8 pm, Wednesday from 9 am to 5 pm, Friday from 2 to 6 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm. For more information, call 802-375-6153, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
