An exhibit featuring the works of fine art and nature photographer Cyndi Goetcheus Sarfan is on display at the Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse through Jan. 31.

Sarfan's exhibition, titled “Wabi Sabi Doors and Windows of the Southeast,” combines the artist’s fascination with doors and windows and her longtime interest in the concept of “wabi sabi, an ancient Japanese concept that embraces the beauty found in the ordinary and imperfect.

Sarfa, who is a resident of Kill Devil Hills, also showcases her work at KDH Cooperative Gallery and at art shows around the region. She is also an active member of the Dare County Arts Council and the Chesapeake Bay Art Association.

From Feb. 4 through March 29, a new exhibit showcasing the quilts of Janet Smith, a winter resident of Manteo, will be on display.

The exhibition will consist of a number of Smith's art quilts constructed over the years.

These quilts show a wide variety of materials, techniques and themes. She has exhibited in Michigan, Maine and locally at the March quilt show at Roanoke Island Festival Park.

For more information about the exhibitions, call (252) 202-9894.
