Battenkill Inspired at Salem Art Works

On Display: April 1st - May 3rd

Opening Event: April 10th, 5pm - 8pm


Partnered with the Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library and Washington County Tourism.

Battenkill Inspired is the Folklife Center at Crandall Library's collaborative 6-month exhibition. Partnering businesses and organizations are invited to host a Battenkill themed event with a common goal to create a historical, art and leisure tour of the region. 

Salem Art Works is  having a opening event on April 10th. During this event we will present a group exhibition of local artists that are inspired by the Battenkill River.  During the opening, we'll have light food, musical performances by the Reed - Nichols Trio, a talk from The Battenkill Conservancy about "The Battenkill for everyone", kids crafts, and readings. 


Musical performances by The Reed - Nichols Trio

"Singing nicked-vinyl gems - spanning genres - in multi-part harmony"

Terry, Ann & Vivian really enjoy a good 20th Century song - taking their pick from the middle decades.  And those songs really enjoy this trio right back. That is, as the Reed~Nichols Trio lends its own brand of harmonizing, acoustic instrumentation and rhythms - with original arrangements by Terry.

This Central Massachusetts-based husband, wife and daughter combo have long delighted in blending musically - both on and off the professional stage. … with Terry Reed, on lead vocals, guitar and harmonica; Ann Reed lending alto harmonies, percussion and drums; and Vivian Nichols providing harmony vocals and clarinet in the Reed~Nichols Trio.
