LANESBORO — An opening reception for “Backyard Splendor,” watercolors by June Young, will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Lanesboro Arts Gallery, 103 Parkway Ave. N.
Young has been painting for 50 years, and uses the difficult glazing technique to achieve the effect of light shining from within the painting. The exhibit features paintings of lilies, orchids, hostas and wildlife. She lives in Alexandria.
The opening will include hors d’oeuvres and live classical music by harpist Eliza Mitchell. Admission is free. “Backyard Splendor” continues through April 10.
