There's still plenty of time to see the "Camellias in Art" exhibit at the Semmesonian Art Space at Semmes Public Library, 9150 Moffett Road in Semmes. Arranged to coincide with the 2015 Semmes Camellia Festival, the art works will remain on display until February 28, according to volunteer curator, Mary Rodning.
Among the outstanding works are those of Philippe Oszuscik, Carol Wiggins, Elizabeth Barnes, Jeanette Byrd, Karen McGahagin, Lori Riley and Cynthia Oszuscik. Some of the more unusual and eye-catching pieces are the origami white camellias by Rodning, the camellia made entirely of plastic lids by members of the Semmes Boys & Girls Club and a pink camellia on a black egg by Kenneth Mosteller.
As a matter of information for artists and aspiring painters, the Mary Ellen Ward Art Guild sponsors a free class for adults on Tuesdays, noon-3 p.m. at Semmes Public Library. For information, call Jeanette Byrd at 649-1647.
