Preserved! LaFontsee Galleries Opening (Grand Rapids)

October 17 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


For the past eight months, 16 artists with ties to West Michigan have been visiting natural areas protected by the Land Conservancy. Using diverse approaches, these painters, photographers, ceramicists and fiber artists have crafted pieces capturing the vibrant natural surroundings found in the protected lands. This fall, the Land Conservancy is hosting two unique gallery exhibitions featuring and selling the artwork created for Preserved!

The public is invited for a first chance to take home pieces capturing the beauty of Flower Creek Dunes Nature Preserve, The Highlands, Saul Lake Bog and more at the exhibitions’ opening receptions. 

The second exhibition at LaFontsee Galleries in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will kick off with an opening reception on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 5-8 p.m. Registration is on sale for $50. All ticket and art sales will benefit the Land Conservancy. Drinks and appetizers will be served.

Register to attend here!
