Art & the Environment Exhibit at Interlochen

Interlochen - what a beautiful place. Founded in 1928 as a summer arts camp for high school age, it is now a year round international arts academy with 500+ students. Many of the buildings are from the CCC era - gorgeous stone buildings! Learn more at

The exhibit opened in the stunning Dow Visual Art Center on Saturday evening, Dec. 4 and runs through Jan. 22, 2011. It was a very chilly evening (25F) with snow in the forecast but it was warm and inviting inside. All the artwork was imaginative, visually complex and exciting.

Below are pictures from the Artist Reception.

12 Views of the Shiawassee River prints. It was the first time I had seen them hanging together in a gallery and not just taped to my living room wall! I was so proud of what I had accomplished! I hope this exhibit will inspire others to explore their environments and help conserve, preserve and enjoy what we've been entrusted with.

One of Jino Park's ink on wood pieces. Incredible detail!!!

Me in front of Eric Hansen's work. His river! (Go river people!!)

Jill Parisi world! These intaglio installations were mounted so that they moved with the air currents - coming alive like a new biological species floating in the wind. Each individual piece was different from the next yet together they created a community - rich and vibrant!

Local printmaker, Dorothy Anderson Grow and exhibitor, Jill Parisi from upstate New York.

Family and Friends. I was blessed to have so many supportive and important people in my life here!

Great pics! Congratulations once again. What a wonderful accomplishment you have created. Still wish I could hop in the car and come up but not easy to get away with hubby's work schedule. Hoping your exhibit is appreciated by many!
