L.R. Montgomery, Artist in Residence at the Dishman Hills, will host an art show on February 14, 2020 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Shape Executive Center, 5915 S. Regal. Original, impressionist oil paintings of Dishman Hills landscapes by L.R. will be on display for viewing and purchase, and a portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to the Dishman Hills Conservancy. This event is open to the pubic. Tickets are $10 per person, and can be purchased at the door or on the Dishman Hills Conservancy’s website at DishmanHills.org/Events. Complimentary champagne and light refreshments will be provided.
“These paintings express the joy of being outdoors, and emphasize the importance of proactive sustainability and conservation,” said Montgomery. “They bring the ambiance and memories of our outdoor experiences in. Collectors say they can hear the water and smell the forest.”
“L.R. has been a good ambassador for the Dishman Hills – both in depicting the beauty of the natural areas and by speaking about the urgency to protect the area,” said Jeff Lambert, Executive Director of the DHC.
