Art Display: Justine Hettler – embroidery, watercolor, block print


Public Reception: March 4, 1:00-3:00pm

Justine is inspired by adventure. Adventure can mean looking further – into cultures and surroundings that differ from our own – or looking closer, studying more intently the tiniest details of nature that surround us. After exploring outside, she will end up with a handful of objects that have caught her eye: a single piece of bark, nut shells, or an oddly shaped flower bud. Each piece has a quiet, secret beauty, revealing interesting shapes, color gradients, intricate lines, and hidden textures. Justine adapts and represents these aspects with watercolor, printmaking, and other media. Her small-sized works invite the viewer to bend closer, pause, and examine, so that the viewers’ experience mirrors her own intimate study of nature. Meet the artist at a Sunday afternoon reception, March 4, 1:00-3:00 pm. Exhibit is open Tues-Sat 10-5, Thurs ‘til 8, Sun 12-4. Both the exhibit and the reception are included in regular Conservatory admission: $5/adult, $3/child age 3-17, free for children 2 and under. For more information, call (260) 427-6440.
