Nature, Divine: Preserving Ecology Through Color
October 17 - November 16, 2019
This exhibition featured works by Jan Dilenschneider, an expressionist artist whose artwork examines the ever-changing panoramas of nature. Her paintings are rich in color and texture. They encompass subjects ranging from lush landscapes and vibrant seascapes to studies of flora. Her compositions emphasize nature's beauty, and perhaps more importantly, they encourage us to appreciate our surroundings in an effort to promote ecological conservation.
