[Released 10/24/12] The Christopher Art Gallery at Prairie State College (PSC) is hosting "Natural Connections," featuring artists Donna June Katz, Connie Wolfe, Jane Fulton Alt, and Vivian Visser.

The exhibit runs from Monday, Nov. 12, through Thursday, Dec. 13, and opens with a reception Thursday, Nov. 15 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the gallery.

Gallery Director and exhibit curator Beth Shadur said, "the artists presented here use nature as a source for their investigation and creativity, but each in their own unique fashion. Their work is varied and yet related by its understanding and appreciation of the natural world. What connects their work is the passion to reflect, respect and transform their view of the natural world into works of art."
