Join Cornerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, February 6 for the opening reception of Where the Wild Things Are featuring the photography of Mary Beth Reinhard. The reception will take place in the Judith Barnes Memorial Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone from 5 to 7 p.m. in conjunction with February’s First Thursday events.
Where the Wild Things Are, is a collection of North American animals found in their natural environment. Giving the animals the respect they deserve allows Reinhard to get close enough to develop a relationship with each animal which is often displayed in her images. From the vulnerability of the Deer, wisdom of the Raven, and rugged majesty of the Moose, it’s almost impossible to look at these images without feeling a connection to the featured creature.
