Cathy VanVoorhis’ (MFA 1986) oil painting, Reichert’s Pond in Late Summer, won the juror’s merit award for 2‑D work in the Dow Museum of Science and Art’s Greater Michigan Art Exhibit. This exhibit will be on display through Sept. 11, 2015 at the Dow Museum in Midland, MI.
This painting was done in collaboration with South East Michigan Legacy Land Conservancy in the effort to bring public appreciation to sensitive natural landscapes in S.E. Michigan. The Reichert Preserve, with several important wetlands in the Huron River watershed, was set aside two years ago for preservation in its natural state.
