Please join us Thursday, January 10th, 5-7 pm for the free opening reception of KELLI GREENTREE AND PHYLLIS BANKER. There will be refreshments, good company, and the artists will speak informally at 6 pm. Show runs January - March 2019. Kelli Greentree / Living Color -Kelli loves the outdoors: a breath of air after rain, the warmth of the sun on her skin, the sounds of the forest, the taste of wild mulberries, the view of the sunset from up high, the sheer joy she experiences while riding her bicycle. And, she loves color: bright and cheery, dark and creepy, she loves it all, and enjoys putting colors together - to jump of the canvas and make it breathe. These inspirations drive her art, allowing her to share her vision of what surrounds us. Phyllis Bankier / Arboretum in Bloom - Phyllis has been volunteering with the UEC’s ROOTS for several years and along the way, getting to know the wildflowers that bloom in Riverside Park and Rotary Arboretum. While seeing the prairie and woodlands thrive with diverse flora and fauna, Phyllis appreciates the dedication and knowledge of UEC staff to preserve and enhance these natural areas. Phyllis’ photographs are like portraits, capturing the essence of beauty within a moment in time, enabling viewers to see the intricacies and details of nature, encouraging a walk outside. The Riverside Park branch of the Urban Ecology Center is open Monday - Thursday 9 am - 7 pm, Friday - Saturday 9 am - 5 pm, and Sunday noon - 5 pm. Located at 1500 E. Park Place, Milwaukee 53211, (414) 964-8505.
