Kathleen O’Brien’s art will be featured at the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning, 251 W. Second St. in Lexington, for a special exhibit. “Atlas of the Year: Sojourner Maps to Being in the Right Place at the Right Time” will be up through April 17 at the center. She describes the installation as 24 pieces “depicting the cosmic year as a four-season, four-direction, cross-cultural celebration,” and says it explores the ability of art to encompass global entwining of time and space. “Which, once understood, allows us to energetically be in the right place at the right time,” O’Brien says.

On Friday, from 5 to 8 p.m., an opening reception will be held. To find out more about the artist, classes she offers online and view her art, visit
