From the artist:
“I have been on a quest for seven years, traveling to each of the 60 national parks to capture them in paint. I want to do all I can to help protect and promote our national parks. My goal as an artist is both to paint them ironically, so that they are distinguishable, and to reveal the unique wonders of each different national park, so you feel as though you are there. I am an advocate, as an artist and as an American, continuing to help promote and protect these vulnerable national treasures.”
An opening reception will be held Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 5-7pm.
This exhibit is on view from June 8 – August 4, 2018.
