I try to walk through the art exhibits at the Kemp periodically. Currently, they have some artwork by fellow Rolling Plains Texas Master Naturalist, Laura Gillis. Laura went through our inaugural class several years ago and has gone on some breeding bird surveys and mussel watches with me over the years.
Laura sculpts metal. She had some art work on display at Earth Day at River Bend and now has several insect pieces at the Kemp. For photos of some of her work, check out a recent Times Record News article.
Laura recycles junk found along the road or given to her by others into artwork. These particular pieces celebrate some of the underappreciated members of the animal kingdom. Check it out--it's close and it's free.
