DARIEN — With work combining her love of nature and the town she’s called home for 30 years, painter Mary Morant is pleased to have the Darien Nature Center hosting her exhibition through Nov. 4.

At Thursday evening’s reception, center Executive Director Leila Wetmore said she was thrilled to have the work, which features many coastal themes, on display.

“She’s incredibly talented,” she said, “and she’s also incredibly supportive of our nature center.”
