One of our own Members Dianne Martia shares her art
Dianne Martia will participate in the Fields Project in Oregon, Illinois, in June to create a Field Sculpture -- an opportunity to “paint with the land” by cutting/mowing flora on a pallet of grassland that can be up to 5 acres in size located in the scenic Rock River Hill Country. These Field Sculptures are designed by the artist and created with the help of a farmer and tractor, mowed into the field, and designed to be viewed and photographed from the air. The objective is to focus public attention on art, agriculture, and our natural resources while creating new relationships between artists, farmers, environmentalists, and educators. As one of the visiting artists, she will also participate in the Fine Arts & Crafts Festival held at Mix Park, located on Rt. 2, south of Rt. 64 in Oregon, Illinois, on June 27.
