Art Exhibit Opens Tonight in WatertownPosted: Updated:
The North Country Arts Council presents “You Got Inked!” featuring the work of artist Melissa
Green. Her display will feature vibrantly colored alcohol inked paintings on a variety of media.

most when I light them on fire and watch them dance.”
The exhibit opens with a reception from 5 pm to 8 pm Friday, February 9 at Arts on the Square, 52 Public Square,
Watertown and will be on display from February 6 through February 24. Light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments
will be served at the opening. Admission is free, but a $5 donation to benefit the North Country Arts Council is

glass and Christmas ornaments. Her class Inked Wall Hangings will be February 10 at Arts on the Square from 2pm
