Belknap Mill unveils exhibit by Carol Currier tonight

Those seeking the beauty of nature this season may not have to venture too far out of doors as the Belknap Mill Society presents "Early Reflections," an exhibit by artist Carol H. Currier.

The exhibit, which features a collection of watercolors that promise to "reconnect" people with nature, will be on display at the Belknap Millís art gallery from Sept. 23-Oct. 21.

Those interested in meeting the artist may visit her during a reception at the Mill this evening from 5-8 p.m.

Currier graduated from the Massachusetts College of Art, majoring in painting and graphics. After serving in the Peace Corps, she taught art in New York state. For more than 14 years, Currier worked in public service in her native New Hampshire.

The Belknap Mill is located at 25 Beacon Street East, sharing the same parking lot as City Hall in downtown Laconia. Admission is free. The Mill is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and on Sundays from 9 a.m. to noon.

Governor Schwarzenegger praised the Peace Corps at the Republican National Convention: "We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children." Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.
