Gary Eldred: The Simple Beauty of Native Plants
Holy Wisdom Monastery is pleased to feature the pen and ink drawings of Gary Eldred who was one of the originators of The Prairie Enthusiasts, an organization whose mission is to protect land with remnant prairies and savannas. His art grew out of his love for the species he was working to protect for future generations. The exhibit illustrates the delicate beauty of native plants that might be missed from a distance.
This collection of 23 works was completed between 1989 and 1991 and is being added to Holy Wisdom’s permanent art collection. The exhibit will run January 11 through February 28, 2019. Gallery hours are Monday – Friday, 8:00 am – 4:30 pm (excluding holidays) and Sundays 10:00 – 11:00 am.
Guests are welcome to attend the art exhibit opening reception on January 11, 2019 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. The evening will include a brief reflection by the artist at 6:00 pm with beverages and light appetizers.
No registration is necessary for the reception, just come, and bring your friends!
