Sierra Club — Images from the Human/Nature art show

On Thursday, 10 October we enjoyed the opening evening of our Human/Nature art show. Approximately 150 people attended and were treated to live music, belly dancing, poetry readings, food, and of course, many many wonderful works of art. Here are some photos from the opening event.
Art show organizer, Rebecca Dien-Johns of the Sierra Club Hoosier Chapter. 
L-R artists Ginger Bievenour and Monica Cannaley, Tim from the Indiana Interchurch Center and Rebecca from Sierra Club, and artist Mark Warpenburg… together they hung 65 works of art from 44 artists.

The show is open to the public now until Thanksgiving, Mondays through Fridays between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. Come and visit, and bring your friends!

Artists from all over Indiana and beyond are exhibiting work reflecting on our human relationship with the natural world. We have also produced a chapbook on the same theme.
