Art exhibit shows off talents of local artist

Local artist Maren R. Zabel's paintings will be featured at an exhibit beginning Feb. 27-April 25, at the St. Croix Valley Restorative Justice Center, 215 N. 2nd St., across from the River Falls post office.

The show, "Prayer for Peace," alternating between a meditational series and an emotional/social issues series, is co-sponsored by River Falls Community Arts Base.

Zabel uses traditional painting methods as building blocks for a non-traditional style. She says her surfaces are alive with texture that physically involves the audience.

A reception for Zabel will be held 7-9 p.m. Friday, March 7 at the St. Croix Restorative Justice Center.

Exhibit hours vary during the week. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead at 425-1100 for those specific show times.
