USF’s Lupke Gallery opening with nature exhibition
Sept. 9, 2013 FORT WAYNE, Ind.—The beauty of a local wetland preserve will be the subject of the opening exhibit in the Lupke Gallery at the University of Saint Francis. “Painting the Untouched Landscape” by Tom Keesee will open Sept. 28 and run through Nov. 8 at the North Campus gallery at 2702 Spring St., across from the main campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Keesee, a nationally recognized local artist and member of the USF faculty, will display paintings, drawing and prints from a body of his work focused upon Eagle Marsh. Most of the works were produced “plein air”—a technique in which they were created outdoors, on-site and capturing the atmosphere, light and environment of Eagle Marsh at the moment of creation.
Lupke Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. For more information, call (260) 399.8064.
