“Esteem: Artists & Mentors,” a collaborative exhibition with pairing the work of nine pairs of artists and mentors, is on display through March 8 in the North Santiam Hall Gallery at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

A reception will be held Wednesday, Jan. 31 from 1 to 2 p.m. in the gallery.
