Watercolor artist Marian Shields Colman will be the artist of the month through April 29 at the West Falmouth Library. Her work may be viewed during library hours, and sales benefit the library and the artist.

Ms. Colman has been an artist and art educator for more than 30 years. Her love of watercolor began in 1988 when she studied with Jane A’Lee Heyerdahl at Cape Cod Community College. She has a master of arts in education and has taught K-12 visual arts in Colorado and Massachusetts. She recently retired as an instructor in watercolor and art education at the University of Minnesota Duluth. An active member of Cape Cod Waterworks Fine Art, she exhibits her work at the Watershed Gallery in Cataumet. Her interest lies in landscape painting, particularly plein-air work.

This exhibition explores the marshes, rivers, bogs, and beaches of Cape Cod and Cape Ann.
