Fine Art Center to display watercolors in February

For the month of February, the Kenai Fine Art Center will be displaying a collection of watercolor paintings submitted by 11 different community members.

The Open Watercolor Show will feature the works of Marlyn Kramer, Nina Kersten, Alex Rydlinski, Ann Mercer, Carolyn Snowder, Melinda Hershberger, Georg-Anne Phillips, James Adcox, Janie Stewart, Ann-Lillian Schell and Maria Shaginoff.

The paintings vary in size and subject matter and include depictions of mermaids, self-portraits, animals and landscapes. Artists were asked to submit their works in the month leading up to the exhibit.

Visitors to the Fine Art Center will be able to vote for their favorite piece by writing it down on a slip of paper and submitting it to a ballot box, and the People’s Choice Award winner will be declared at the end of the month.

Today, the Fine Art Center will host an opening reception for the exhibit that is free and open to the public. The artists will be there to answer questions about their work, and there will also be refreshments and live music. The reception is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Fine Art Center, which is located next to the Oilers Bingo Hall in Old Town Kenai. Regular hours for the Fine Art Center are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.
