We are expecting over 100 entries, and I hope your art is included. The theme is local nature: art depicting our Nature Center, our parks, rivers, plants and animals. All art media is wanted; paintings, drawings, sculpture, fiber art and photography.

We are honored to have Helen Plenert and Betty Cooper as judge(s). Entry is online and the due date is on or before April 24.
