PRESQUE ISLE, Wis. - The Presque Isle Library is hosting a contemporary, abstract art exhibit through the end of March.

Artist Christine Alfery will exhibit work from her "Fairies" and "Artist Muse" series, which features "luscious colors and images that make you want to dance," according to library spokesperson Kay Lobrbiecki.

Alfery will give a presentation called "An Imaginary Place That Really Exists" on Monday, Feb. 17, at 2 p.m. at the library. She will discuss the spirit and inspirations within her work.

"To create art, an artist must have courage to search and embrace the mystery that lies deeply within the notions of the real and the imagined," Alfery said. "To find the song and dance within a work of art the artist must be the medium in which song and dance are transmitted."

The exhibit can be viewed at the library on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.

For more information, call the library at 715-686-7613.
