The Searsmont Town Library will open a new exhibit, “Watercolors & Metalwork by Maryfaith Morison,” with a reception with the artist Friday, Jan. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m.

In both her fabricated jewelry and watercolors, the idea of spontaneity within the process is a prime directive of this artist. Trained as a printmaker, Morison has increasingly favored watercolor because that medium more readily enables working entirely in the moment.

This exhibit will be on display through March 5. Searsmont Town Library in in the Searsmont Community Center, intersection of routes 131 and 173.
