A good friend and colleague of mine, the director of a regional land conservancy, is always looking for ways to broaden public support for her organization and for open space conservation in general. She's so creative and energetic that I get jealous of her.
Her latest outreach extravaganza was organizing an invitational multimedia, nature-themed art exhibit in cooperation with our community college. Kali and I received an invitation to attend the opening, held on Monday evening, December 3, in the Fine Arts Center Gallery at the community college.
The event was very well-attended, with many of the artists present, as well as some of my colleagues from other land trusts in the area. The Fine Arts Center Gallery is a very attractive, two-level space reminiscent of a renovated barn with a contemporary interior. The college had set out a beautiful spread of hors d'oeuvres and wine on a second floor mezzanine overlooking the art displayed on the first floor.
