ART ON VIEW

IT'S A WILD LIFE
Debbie Palen

Debbie Palen’s work on display represents a portion of her career as a freelance illustrator providing art for children’s books and magazines. Humorous and educational, this mixed media artwork draws upon a child’s curiosity and encourages their engagement with the natural world. Many of the pieces were created for Ranger Rick, a publication of the National Wildlife Federation.

This exhibit will be shown from May 9 - August 15. Opening Reception: Thursday, May 9 5:30PM - 7PM.
