Local painters invite the community to enjoy a range of watercolor works displayed at the Dexter Library through August 19, 2012.This exhibit represents the efforts of eleven local artists who meet on a weekly basis to study watercolor painting. Subjects range from landscapes to portraits, florals to animals and marine life, and much more. Given the current dedication and accomplishments of the group, it is surprising to learn that its origins were decidedly informal. “About three years ago, some of us took a watercolor workshop together, and things just went from there,” explains Angelo Angelocci. “We had fun and we laughed a lot,” adds Ellen Meyer, “so we decided to keep going.” Works are on display throughout the library, with the majority on display on the lower level. Event is free to the public.
