Artist at Pine Needles Exhibit
St. Croix Visitor Center
September 8 - October 7, 2012
The St. Croix Watershed Research Station is pleased to announce, with the National Park Service, St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, that artwork created by the Artists at Pine Needles will be on display in St. Croix Falls in September and October. "Inspired by the River," an exhibition featuring over 25 pieces of art that resulted from artists residencies since 2002, will be shown in the Riverway's Visitor Center.
Since 2002, 27 artists and writers have taken part in the residency program, which explores connections between science and art. The display will include paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber art, collages and sculpture which were created during or after the artists' stay along the St. Croix River. The pieces on display are those donated by the artists to the research station after their residencies. Many pieces present different views of the river, while others reflect the artists' interaction with the environmental scientists at the Research Station.
The St. Croix River Visitor Center is located at 401 North Hamilton Street in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin. It is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with free admission. For additional information, call (715) 483-2274. The exhibit will be on display through October 7, 2012.
