WARWICK — Janet Howard-Fatta’s latest plein air exhibit will be honored with a closing reception on Sunday, Dec. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m., at The Grange, 1 Ryerson Road, Warwick.

Howard-Fatta’s latest series, "Onion Fragrance in the Air," depicts the diverse seasonal growth provided by rich terrain of Orange County. This garden-centric series is appropriately rooted on the walls of The Grange, where spring and summer’s most creative dishes realize their beginnings in the Pine Island, organic soil of The Kitchen Garden. This local garden is co-owned and operated by Chef James Haurey’s partner, Dominique Herman.

The evening’s sales from the "Onion Fragrance In The Air" collection raises funds for Boricua de Agricultura Ecologica, a sustainable agricultural organization in Puerto Rico through YouCaring.com - 20 percent of all sales will be donated to assist Puerto Rican farmers in rebuilding farms after Hurricane Maria brought mass devastation to the island.

Light appetizers and cash bar will be available.

Howard-Fatta is a board member of the Orange County Arts Council and the Warwick Summer Arts Festival; facilitates the Warwick Life Drawing Group and is a Live Event painter.
