The Loft Gallery at The Smithy Store (www.thesmithystore.com) in New Preston will present works by pastelist and painter Carol T. Moore through Feb. 18.

Moore, a resident of Bantam, is known for her dynamic, colorful, energy-charged paintings.

She is fascinated by local, (and not so local), industrial sites, cityscapes, bridges and towers, and uses negative space as an key element as she creates each piece.

Moore’s paintings are in collections throughout the United States and Canada.

The gallery is located at the 10 Main St. store.
