ALAN CRICHTON is a sculptor, printmaker and teacher living in Liberty, Maine. Educated at the University of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Goddard College and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, he has taught at the Farnsworth Museum, Colby College and the MFA program at Vermont College. He has exhibited throughout Maine for over twenty-five years. His award-winning column of art appreciation and opinion, Hi-Lo Art, appeared in the Waldo Independent, the Camden Herald and Art New England. Crichton’s sculpture, drawings and paintings are in numerous collections throughout Maine, New England and New York.

“We are so easily impressed, and often overwhelmed, by the force and wildness of Nature. Our art connects us with the spirit underlying both the chaos and the beauty. I want to find these connections through my work.”
In 2000, Crichton and a group of friends founded the Arts Center at Kingdom Falls, a non-profit, artists’ residency and community arts education organization, now known as Waterfall Arts, with locations in Montville and Belfast, Maine. Waterfall Arts offers arts education, exhibits, artists’ residencies and events for mid-coast Maine and beyond.
