TRURO - An Ontario native used her first solo exhibition to rediscover her roots and celebrates those in ‘Scotian Views, Landscape & Wildlife Art of Nova Scotia.'

Darlene Watters moved to Truro more than two years ago and, through a Truro Art Society group show last year, she discovered her ancestors were among the first English-speaking settlers, the Planters, to arrive in Colchester County in 1761.

Watters' exhibit will be on display in the Artscapes Room at Saltscapes Restaurant and General Store until Feb. 3. An opening reception is scheduled for Dec. 9.

The author's works are a collection of paintings and drawings reflecting the beauty around us, focusing on detail and expression, light and form.

Watters will be available for a meet and greet at the reception on Dec. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The display is open to public for viewing and the artwork may be purchased on site.
