A group of artists known as “Painters Five” will have their work featured in the gallery from Nov. 10 to Dec. 22 in an exhibit titled “Art Treasures for the Holidays: Work under $200 by Estrid Eklof, Walter Kendra, Carolyn Newell, Diane Rubacha and Lisa Tellier.”

There will be a reception held Nov. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, which is located at 66 W. Main St.
