Joline McFadden of Lewiston will have her work exhibited at the Central Maine Medical Center’s rotating art gallery until Feb. 5.

A Maine native, McFadden’s first choice of medium is transparent watercolor, and she has been working with watercolor for the past eight years.

She has shown her paintings throughout Maine at various juried and invitational exhibits and has received recognition through numerous placement and purchase awards. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada and Europe.
