– Local artists Karen A. Johnson and Suzanne Wegener will be exhibiting their work at the Heller Nature Center Prairie Room, located at 2821 Ridge Road beginning Monday, May 1.
The exhibit entitled “Transitions” includes a variety of media that captures details of nature’s moments as seen through the eyes of the artists.
