Jacobs, of Bazetta, began painting celebrities to pass time during the pandemic. One piece soon became two, and the collection grew to the final “Covid 19.” A drive-by art exhibit in her front yard received TV and newspaper coverage, leading her to expand with the “Every Day People Series.” “Covid Celebrity Series” and “Every Day People Series” are on display through Feb. 27.

According to a news release, the Mahoning Valley Watercolor Society was founded in 1982 by 11 area artists with a goal to encourage local watercolor painters. The group provides watercolorists a place to share work, learn more about watercolor techniques and receive information regarding watercolor-related events in the community. The group includes both beginners and professional artists who teach and show their work internationally.
