DARIEN — An art reception at Darien Library Friday night welcomed a hometown woman with a flare for photography.

Allesandra Macbeth Mossa hosted the opening of her show “Reflections: a series of observations, experiences and creations,” with good friends and fans of her photography.

“I’m very excited,” Mossa said, “and honestly very honored that the library selected me to have a show here.”

Mossa said her work is a meditation on staying consciously present—something the creative process itself helps her to practice.
