Artwork by the Booth Artist Guild will be on display in the Art Gallery at the Cartersville Public Library through Jan. 31. Patrons also will have the opportunity to meet the artists and ask questions at a reception today from 5 to 6 p.m.

The Booth Artist Guild is made up of individuals who share an interest in continuing art education through monthly programs, networking and art exhibitions. BAG members support the Booth Western Art Museum through their membership, and then pay an additional fee to participate in the Booth Artist Guild. Currently, there are 58 members. Of those 58, 16 submitted artwork to be considered for the exhibition.

The exhibition at the Cartersville Public Library is a juried show. Artwork was brought in by members of the BAG to be judged by a committee of objective individuals. All of the pieces exhibited are original works of art. The exhibition includes oils, watercolors, pastels, photographs, jewelry, pottery and fiber arts.

The library -- located at 429 W. Main St. -- is open Monday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For direc
