Maybe you'll recognize some of the watercolors in the Jamaica Plain Branch Library's first art exhibition for the year because it's "Local Scenes" by Kevin Gillespie.
The Jamaica Plain resident's work is often done en plein air, as he illustrates his neighborhood's natural scenes like the shadows of tree branches, water ripples, the four seasons of New England and more.
This is the first of six art exhibitions at the library branch due to a partnership between the Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch Library and the Uforge Gallery.
The exhibition will be on view from Jan. 4 through Feb. 28, with an open reception on Jan. 10 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The exhibition space is located on the lower level of the library.
