The Eagle Creek Park Foundation will feature over 100 pieces of nature-based artwork as part of its 28th annual “Celebration of Nature” exhibit and sale, which takes place Saturday, Dec. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 13 at the park’s Earth Discovery Center.
Visitors can browse a wide variety of media from around 40 area artists, which includes photography, woodcarvings, oil and watercolor paintings, pen and ink, and more. All entries depict undisturbed natural flora, fauna and landscapes, and represent a variety of ecosystems found in Indiana and surrounding areas.
Fifteen percent of every sale benefits the Eagle Creek Park Foundation whose mission is to promote, preserve, protect and enhance Eagle Creek Park – one of the nation’s largest city-owned parks, which is mandated as self-sufficient.
This holiday exhibit is the third and final nature-themed art show of the year at the park. It’s preceded by the “Woodcarver, Woodturner & Woodburner” exhibit, which is set for March 5-6, 2016 and the “Images of Nature” photography contest every September.
