The Hosmer Gallery at the Forbes Library is hosting exhibitions this month from three talented local artists. Janice Doppler blends a love of ornithology and wood carving to create stunningly lifelike sculptures of a myriad of bird species, while Patricia Dorr Parker captures moments in nature through her Close to Home series of paintings and drawings. Finally, the paintings and drawings of Miriam Wells focus on American labor and post-industrial landscapes, drawing inspiration from trade workers and the abandoned mills of Franklin County.
Hosmer Gallery: On display through Jan. 30. Artists’ reception Saturday, Jan. 14, 1-4 p.m. Forbes Library, 20 West St., Northampton.
