Opening reception: Friday, October 21, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
In Tributaries of Earth and Water Project Art for Nature (PAN) celebrates the landscape, wildlife, and waterways encompassed by our local national parks. This is one in a series of exhibits PAN is presenting as part of the National Park Service’s Find Your Park initiative in communities within the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area and the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway. PAN states, “As individual artists, we are each tributaries, contributing artworks to our exhibits, creating a greater whole. As a group we hope to be a tributary to the natural beauty of our region.”
PAN is a collaboration of artists and illustrators from Minnesota and Wisconsin working independently and collaboratively to create artwork which promotes stewardship of unique natural areas in our region. PAN artists work in a wide variety of media, including sculpture, paper-cutting, mixed media, as well as many different printmaking, painting, and drawing media, including plein air, watercolor, and natural pigments from the earth.
