Cambria artist Ruth Armstrong is exhibiting a selection of etchings and woodcut prints at the Cambria Library during January.

The highlight of the exhibit is 26 laughing animal portraits, each representing a letter of the alphabet, including an ostrich and camel.

Armstrong, whose education has included psychology and anthropology at UCLA and a bachelor of fine arts degree from California College of Arts and Crafts, has shown her work in Oakland Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art and several galleries in Berkeley. She is also currently exhibiting at the Morro Bay Art Association and Cambria Center for the Arts

Armstrong uses only archival inks and papers and all the pieces are framed originals. All the works are individually priced; proceeds of any sales benefit the Friends of the Cambria Library.

The library is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays at 900 Main St. For more information, call librarian Joen Kommer at 927-4336.
