“So Many Things” by Sally Stanton.

After many years of dormancy, a new effort to bring back the Midcoast Chapter of the UMVA (Union of Maine Visual Artists) is culminating in a first exhibit by members at the Camden Public Library, 55 Maine St., Camden, from Jan. 4 to 29.

An artist reception is scheduled for 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Jan. 7. The event is free and open to the public.

“Island Village Treetops” by Kelly Desrosiers.

Art exhibited will range from photography to painting to monoprints and mixed-media work.

The exhibit can be viewed any day the library is open.
