Art Show by Barbara Gillette
December 1, 2016 @ 8:00 am - February 24, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Artist Barbara Gillette’s landscape drawings are inspired by farms, fields and meadows of Medina County where she lives, as well as from her travels through other parts of the Midwest. Her work focuses on the beauty of the natural and agricultural lands as they change with each season.
“I hope to preserve the natural and rural areas in my work before they become shopping malls and housing developments,” Gillette explained. She and her husband, John, donated a conservation easement on their 20-acre wooded property in Wadsworth Township years ago. Since then a large shopping mall has been built north of the property and many apartment buildings to the west. She shared, “We are an oasis in the midst of this development.”
Gillette’s work is on display at the Western Reserve Land Conservancy Conservation Center now through February 28, 2017. The Land Conservancy’s Conservation Center is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
