‘Art for Stewardship’ at David Scriven Crowley
Rockland — The David Scriven Crowley Gallery, 409 Main St., will host “Art for Stewardship,” an evening art auction and reception to benefit Georges River Land Trust, Friday, Sept. 7 from 5 to 9 p.m.
The auction will include pieces from local artists including Frank Bruckman, Mary Collins, Jared Cowan, David Scriven Crowley, Lois Dodd, Doug Hartley, Eric Hopkins, Bryan Jones, Tom O’Donovan, Daniel Seigel and others. All the proceeds will go to support the long-term care and management of properties protected by GRLT.
“So many of our longtime supporters have come to us with creative ideas to help us celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Land Trust,” said Gail Presley, executive director of the land trust. “We are grateful to David and so many other local artists for donating their work to support stewardship of our conserved lands.”
Crowley has been painting and creating works of art for more than 50 years. He has exhibited widely and holds places in many private, corporate and museum collections. After spending most of his life on Cape Ann in Mass., he has made Cushing his home and opened his downtown gallery in 2009. He has been a member of the land trust for seven years.
The “Art for Stewardship” auction is being held in conjunction with the Rockland First Friday art walk with 23 participating venues. Georges River Land Trust is committed to encouraging citizens to discover the river and care for the land throughout the 14 communities in the St. George River watershed.
