Learning the Land: Stewarding Beauty

July 12 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm CDT

Free
The Little Calumet River at Dale B. Engquist Nature Preserve by Joel Sheesley

Shirley Heinze Land Trust (SHLT) and the Beverly Shores Depot Museum and Art Gallery have partnered to bring plein air artist, Joel Sheesley to our community as the first SHLT artist-in-residence. Over the last two years and in all four seasons, he visited Shirley Heinze nature preserves and created a collection of 15 paintings. The exhibit titled, Learning the Land: Stewarding Beauty, is a visually stunning reflection of the wide array of landscapes Shirley Heinze has preserved.

Make plans to join us and the artist at the opening reception at the Beverly Shores Depot on July 12, 2024 from 5 – 7 pm CT, preceded by a lecture from the artist from 4 – 5 pm CT. In this illustrated talk Joel Sheesley will speak about what he learned as he painted complex landscapes in Porter and LaPorte Counties.  He will discuss his painting methods, his conceptual understanding of landscape painting, and the sense of meaning he finds in landscape painting.
