The Ripberger Public Library is currently exhibiting the artwork of Caitlin Daniel, a young artist specializing in animal portraits. Most of her work is in colored pencil, but she also does graphite, pen and ink and wood burning. The library will be hosting a reception in her honor on Sunday, Nov. 11 from 2-4 p.m.

Daniel grew up on a farm in North Carolina, but she now resides in lovely Southside Virginia on a small farm with her husband and menagerie of animals. She currently attends Southside Virginia Community College and is studying for an associate degree in Agribusiness.

Caitlin’s art will be on display through mid-November and can be viewed during regular library house, Mondays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturdays, 9 a.m.-noon.

At this time her work on display is not for sale, but she does take commissions. Her art page on Facebook is called Lifelike Art and Commissions.
