Pastels, oils and watercolors -- more than 50 works of art from students at the Pascal Senior Center will be on display this month at the North County Library.

The artists will discuss their work at a reception from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday at the library, 1010 Eastway.

A limited number of paintings will be available for sale.

Part of Anne Arundel Community College's continuing education program, the art classes are taught by local artist Martha Lenhoff. Some of the artists have been studying with Lenhoff for 10 years.

"Everyone takes the class for a difference reason. For some it's a hobby, for others it's a chance to continue something they enjoyed in high school," Lenhoff said. "Some begin by saying they can't paint at all and turn out to be wonderful."

For information on the exhibit, call the library at 222-6270.
