Frozen Warnings: Richard Barlow and Anne Elizabeth Moore in Conversation [Online]
Fri, Oct 23, 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

In conjunction with Richard Barlow’s immersive chalk drawing installation at Bushel for the exhibition FROZEN WARNINGS, Bushel is pleased to host an online event, featuring a conversation between Barlow and cultural critic Anne Elizabeth Moore.

Barlow’s chalk drawings, while ephemeral, speak directly to such matters as commercialization and climate change. Moore, who has watched the artist’s work grow over nearly four decades, will speak to Barlow about his pop culture and art historical influences, his work as a musician, and his misspent Midwestern youth.

The event will take place via Zoom. Please join us here (this link will be live 5 minutes before the start time.)

Conversations can continue the following morning for a special open hours at Bushel, Saturday, October 24, 10 am–12 noon, for a look at the FROZEN WARNINGS exhibition, and a sidewalk coffee reception for Barlow and Moore.


Richard Barlow is a visual artist and musician. He holds an MFA from the University of Minnesota and a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. His work is exhibited nationally. In 2016 he was an artist-in-residence at The Arctic Circle, an origin for the large-scale chalk drawings of the ice pack edge that he will create on Bushel’s two main walls for Frozen Warnings. He has taught at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Cloud State University, and the Interlochen Center for the Arts. Barlow is currently an Associate Professor of Art at Hartwick College in Oneonta. 

Anne Elizabeth Moore was born in Winner, SD. She is the author of several critically acclaimed works of non-fiction, including Unmarketable (The New Press, 2007) and Body Horror (Curbside Splendor, 2017). Her Truthout comics journalism series with Melissa Mendes was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2018 and her last book, Sweet Little Cunt, won an Eisner Award in 2019. Her next book, on winning a free house in Detroit, is called Gentrifier: A Memoir, and will be out from Catapult next year. Anne lives in Hobart, New York with her cat, Captain America.


The exhibition and related programming are made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered in Delaware County by the Roxbury Arts Group.
