Lake Metroparks opens its 29th year of art shows with its annual spring art show, “Expressions of Nature,” featuring local artist Julie Cook 

Energy. Expression. Inspiration.

Discover how local artist Julie Cook brings the elements of Energy, Expression and Inspiration together to create unique mixed media paintings inspired by nature.

“I like to create art for others and hope they enjoy my experimentation,” says artist Julie Cook. “Many of my paintings are painted using more than a brush—and often without one. I use cardboard scraps, pieces of wood, plastic from packaging and more. Sometimes I paint from an actual ‘real’ place and put my own interpretation on it, and some of my paintings are a collaboration of the nature that surrounds me where I live or where I’ve been or sometimes just where I’d like to be.”

“Expressions of Nature” will be displayed at the Penitentiary Glen Nature Center in Kirtland. The show opens March 21 and runs through May 17. Hours are 9 am to 5 pm daily. Admission is free. Julie’s artwork is available for purchase; with proceeds benefitting Nature Center programs.
