If you're going to attend a reception for an art exhibition, figuring maybe you'll get to hobnob with an actual Creative Person, you might as well go full-out. Friday's Gallery One "Meet the Artists" reception in Old Saybrook features a meet 'n' greet with all seven artists whose work is currently on display. See and discuss art with Molly McDonald (her "Early Spring" is shown above), Nile Barrett, Dvid Brown, Mary Fussell, Maureen Squires, Karen Bartone and Catherine Christiano.
Show runs through Oct. 5. Hours 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Tues.-Sat., noon-5 p.m. Sun.; (860) 388-0907, galleryonect.com.
