Great Eastern Wilderness, Its Wildlife and Native People

Exhibit: April 14-May 31
Program: April 19 2:00 pm 

Have you ever wondered what the great Eastern American Wilderness really looked like before European settlement in the 18th century? Fortunately, some of the first naturalists, explorers, Indian captives and missionaries from that time left vivid descriptions in journals. They described the vast pristine beauty of the land and rivers, the immense trees, remarkable wildlife and native people. Mary Louis Holt has created a series of paintings based on the colorful descriptions from those original journals. 

Travel back through time with the artist as she takes you into this wilderness with compelling stories and images from her paintings during the special program on April 19 at 2:00 p.m.

Exhibit admission is $2/adults, $1/children 5-11. Children under 5 and museum members are free.

Admission for the program is $3 for museum members and $5 for non-members. 

Mary Louise Holt was an honors graduate from the College of Mount Saint Joseph with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She started her career as a graphic designer, illustrator, and courtroom artist for local and national television. With comprehensive formal training in the academic tradition of fine portraiture and figurative painting she paints many portraits n commission for private collectors. She has studied under internationally renowned artists Daniel Greene and Nelson Shanks. She is a member of Oil Painters of America and the Portrait Society of America.
