WATERVILLE, Maine (WABI) - An interactive and cozy art exhibit is on display in Waterville.

Designed to foster community, conversation, and creativity, the Common Street Arts gallery downtown has been transformed to make you feel right at home.

It's called 'dwell: at home in the gallery'.

Featuring lounge areas, artwork, and activities that encourage interaction and creativity, this living room atmosphere provides a comfortable escape from the cold.

Leisurely exploration of the gallery's record player, piano, puzzles and game boards is encouraged.

It's free and open to everyone. Each week features different programs and activities.

"This weekend we have Jessica Graham, a local history teacher who's going to be facilitating conversations with the community in the gallery about their stories of Waterville. So everybody is invited, it's a free event," said Patricia King, Vice President of Programs & Operations, Waterville Creates.

The Stories from Waterville's Past event takes place January 27th, from 1-3pm.

The 'dwell' exhibit will be on display until February 10th.

The gallery is open Wednesday thru Saturday from 12-5.
