    Visitors can browse a variety of nature-based media including photography, woodcarvings, oil and watercolor paintings, and even pen and ink, all contributed by local artists.

    All entries depict undisturbed natural flora, fauna and landscapes, and represent a variety of ecosystems found in Indiana and surrounding areas.

    “With the holidays right around the corner and most artwork up for sale, it’s a perfect time to browse one-of-a-kind gifts for loved ones,” said Leah Frenzel, Eagle Creek Park naturalist.

    A percentage of sales benefits the Eagle Creek Park Foundation whose mission is to preserve, protect, enhance and support the future of Eagle Creek Park, one of the nation’s largest city-owned parks.

    For more than two decades, countless artists have participated in this end of year exhibit, which is preceded by two nature-themed shows every year.

    The next art show is the “Woodcarver & Turner” exhibit set for Feb. 22-23, 2014 in the same venue.

    Exhibit hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Cost is free with daily park admission, which is $5 per vehicle.

    For more information, log on www.Indy.gov/EagleCreek under “Art Shows” or call the Earth Discovery Center at (317) 327-1196.
