2011 Marianist Environmental Education Center Exihibition

 Every year the Marianist Environmental Education Center at Mt. St. John hosts an exhibition on an ecological them to "help people connect with the world's beauty, deepen our understanding of the ecosystem and inspire actions for sustanability."  This year, in honor of the 25th anniversary of obtaining and restoring the prairie and surrounds the theme was "Restoration." 

Over 60 visual artists and writers submitted pieces for the exhibition.  I have a piece in it, but it is by no means one of the only fiber pieces.  This show usually has a lot of fiber art represented.  The  exhibition runs through the 25th, then some pieces will be shown at a downtown Dayton church.  For more information, you can visit here

 I think this year's show is a little smaller than others.  I know that I had another piece I intended to enter but I didn't finish it in time.  All types of artwork is on exhibition, as well as poetry and prose.

One of my favorite things about this show is that it includes not only recognized artists, but pieces from our youth as well.  This is "Riding in the Meadow" by Trinity Raber who is in the 2nd grade.

Many of the pieces are for sale and quite a number of them have sold.  I'll focus in on the fiber pieces in the upcoming posts.

I thought that the picture at the top of your post was special. The implication in meaning in the art is so clear.

It's a really neat piece, isn't it? I have to call tomorrow and find out the artist's name. I remember her pieces from other years and they are equally wonderful and speak volumes. I just can't remember!

The work she put into making the wings and everything is superb.
