On Saturday, July 20, the National Eagle Center will host artist Jan Killian in the Watershed Gallery for a live painting and artist meet-and-greet event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Killian, an artist from Cumberland, Wis., is currently exhibiting work in the Watershed Gallery at the National Eagle Center. “The Colorful Side of Nature” exhibition features depictions of wildlife using the specialized medium of alcohol-based paint.
“Each living soul that I have had the privilege to capture in a photograph has its own unique personality and character,” explains Killian on her website, www.woolyfrogarts.com. “The eyes tell the story of all animals and birds.”
Visitors will be able to watch Killian work on a new painting and learn about her art and process all day.
“We’re very excited to host Jan at the National Eagle Center,” said Anna Christenson, Watershed Gallery curator. “Her work is beautiful and expressive and it will be a wonderful opportunity for our guests to gain an insight into her art and inspirations.”
