Clay and Canvas: Leslie Green
A 50-year retrospective

5/25/2018 - 7/7/2018

Bears, horses, elephants, wolves, trees, cave art, and landscapes, all inhabit Leslie Green’s body of work over the past 50 years.  Beginning with pottery, and ceramic sculpture, then to her present organic, tree-inspired paintings, she explores the human/nature connection in various abstract ways.  Nature informs her always evolving creative process. Please join us for an opening reception on Friday, June 1 from 5-7pm in the Moreland Auditorium at Benton County Museum.
