Staff report

Maxine (Mickey) Davis is exhibiting fused glass work at the Charlotte Library throughout the month of October. The opening is at 6 p.m. on Oct. 18 at the library, and Davis will be there to answer questions about the artwork.

“Color and whimsy. That’s my passion,” Davis said. “Color permeates my art, and together with my sense of whimsy I try to bring forth playfulness and humor to my viewer.”

Davis trained in art at the University of Vermont, St. Michael’s, Champlain College, CCV and Burlington College, as well as through the Osher Life Long Institute at Coastal Carolina University. After working exclusively with painting mediums, her direction channeled into glass, which she has been doing exclusively since 2007.
