Wayne King's Art on Exhibit in Lincoln Aug 2-30, 2017

August is the second month of a two month exhibition of images by Rumney-based artist Wayne King.
The exhibit features some of King’s most popular images including Alton Washday and Wonalancet Mindscape.

A community reception is scheduled for Friday August 18 from 6pm-8pm at the library.
