Millville Town Peddler announced this week that it will host local artist Claire Marino for a month-long exhibit and artist reception during November. The collection will be displayed at in the rear section of the shop, and the public can meet the artist at an artist reception on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 1 p.m. The show depicts landscapes, seascapes and flowers by the young Delaware artist.

A 22-year-old, mainly self-taught watercolor artist and photographer, Marino has promoted and sold her artwork locally for about four years, as well as participated in various art shows, including several at the Beach Cottage and the Bethany Beach Artisans Festival, and last year at the Bethany Beach Boardwalk Arts Festival with her aunt Erin Miele, a professional artist.

“My family and God’s beautiful creation inspire my artwork,” she said.

The art showing is free and open to the public. Marino’s artwork will be available for purchase. Members of the community are being invited to come enjoy the art, take part in the artists’ reception, sale specials and light refreshments.
