Staff Art on Display

Kristin and her art 004 (2)

Kristin Florian, of Dana Medical Library’s Collections and Acquisitions Department, has artwork  in the 5th Annual Staff Art Show.  Through September 30th, Kristin is showing 2 lithograph prints in the Livak Fireplace Lounge and Gallery, Davis Center, 4th floor.

Here are Kristin’s thoughts on her art and process:

I enjoy drawing, and see printmaking as a way of adding color to a drawing. I like the process of simplifying color choices and planning ahead, but still being surprised at the end of the process. My favorite subjects are: surrealism or magical realism in nature, landscapes on a larger scale, and visualizing passages from books.

I first make a drawing. I then transfer the image backwards onto a linoleum block. Next, I cut the areas I want to be white (or another color) out of the linoleum block. To print, I roll the paint onto the block using a brayer, register the paper on the block, and rub the back of the print. I let it dry, cut the next layer and repeat the process until it is done.

Stop by and check out her work!

Staff News

The Dana Medical Library has recently welcomed 3 new staff members to its team: Craig Chalone, Kristin Florian, and Kate Bright. Stop by the library and introduce yourself!


Craig Chalone
Joining Access Services in February, Craig Chalone comes to the library from the University of Maine at Machias, Merrill Library, where he also worked as Adjunct Faculty in Music at the college. Before his time in Maine, Craig worked at the Bailey-Howe Library here at the University of Vermont for 6 years. Outside of work, Craig enjoys reading, walking, baseball, playing guitar and mandolin, and collecting music. He also has a love for nature and animals.


Kristin Florian
Joining Collections Management, Kristin Florian began work in March and has been busily learning the ropes of medical collection development, e-resources trouble-shooting, and a host of other activities. She comes to us most recently from the Lexington County Public Library System in Lexington, South Carolina where she coordinated non-fiction collection development, among other tasks. This past winter was her first winter in Vermont and tried both downhill and cross-country skiing for the first time.


Kate Bright
Kate Bright is Dana’s newest member, joining the Admin Department in May for Director and Library Support. Kate is originally from Upstate New York and, as a child, spent summers on Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks. She graduated from Bard College in 2001 and moved to Madison WI to complete a graduate art degree in painting in 2007. After spending 6 years in Wisconsin and having her 2 children at home, she and her family moved to VT to be closer to family. She, more recently, worked at the Shelburne Museum in their education department facilitating programs, one of which was a tour program for individuals who are blind or partially sighted. Continuing to paint, she still spends a lot of time in the Adirondacks but has acquired a deep love for Vermont and is happy to call it home.
