Convocation and Lobby Display: John Agnew and Art in Nature

If you haven’t already, you owe it to yourself to stop by the library lobby to view various works of art on display by this week’s convocation speaker, and naturalist artist, John Agnew.

To look at John Agnew’s work is to enter the mysterious and enchanting world of a forest floor, mountainous cliffs and crags, the heights of a rain forest or the surface of a hidden pond. Each painting draws you in to its unique environment” (from amazon.com).
