According to an event description: "While Haroon Khimani's abstract acrylic media works seek the beauty to be found in collapsed structures and natural disasters, Susanah Howland's closely observed oil paintings reveal the shifting perceptions of a sense of place. Vicki Denby's ethereal "Portraits", drawn with black watercolor, are in a style reminiscent of intaglio printmaking."
5. Snowy and Windy: Snow's in the forecast -- about 2 to 4 inches of it -- with wind gusts of up to 38 miles per hour and a daytime high of 35, according to the National Weather Service, which predicts a blustery and snow evening with a low of 31.
