Joni Lee Carrington’s “Wildlife” exhibit at the French Art Colony captures a bit of “nature’s beauty and vitality,” with more than 20 oil paintings. The works will be on display this coming week, and the artist will be at the FAC Sunday from 1-5 p.m. to meet the public and answer any questions about her work. Carrington is a teacher and historian as well as an artist; she is now in her 33rd year of teaching painting at Gingerbread Studio in Albany, Ohio. She offers adult art lessons and does commission work; she also has oil painting for sale, hand-paints furniture, and does murals. The FAC’s hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday — Thursday, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
