A Surprising Creature

Mary and Michael Gerace get a sneak peek at “Funky Giraffe” made from recycled materials by Renee Mitchener of Southwestern Central School. Her creation, which is covered in plaster gauze and mixed media, is part of the Chautauqua County Art Teachers exhibit that opens today at Prendergast Library Art Gallery, 509 Cherry St., Jamestown. Teachers will greet guests from 6:30-8 p.m.
