Todd Weaver, a local dentist practicing in Siskiyou County for 17 years, is the new featured artist at the Weed Library.

An artist’s reception with Dr. Weaver is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the library, located at 150 Alamo in Weed.

Todd moved from southern California when he was seven years old and began painting at a local art studio when he was in junior high. He developed a love for wildlife art and finds beauty in capturing the details of creation.

One of his paintings has been selected to grace the cover of an upcoming phone book.

His paintings will be on display at the library until the end of March.
