A colorful new collection of acrylics on canvas, “In the Bleak Midwinter,” is Pownalbased artist Wren Pearson’s newest exhibit at Freeport Community Library.

“My first winter back in Maine after living in Texas I was numbed by the shades of white and gray that played out across the fields surrounding our home,” Pearson said. “I found myself looking keenly at the red berries on the viburnum and waiting with anticipation for the daily visits of the scarlet cardinals to our bird feeders. Color was going to be the key to not going absolutely mad.”

Wren’s “In the Bleak Midwinter” exhibit is located in the Main Reading Room of Freeport Community Library during the month of January. For more information, visit the library’s website at freeportlibrary.com or call (207) 865-3307.
