Learn tips to preserve the environment at Palm Beach State College talk
The staff and Friends of John D. MacArthur Beach State Park and the CEO of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades, Mark Pafford, will speak about how to preserve our natural habitats from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sept. 3 in Meldon Hall, Room BB 111 on Palm Beach State College’s Palm Beach Gardens campus. The event is free and open to the public.
The presentation, titled “Ecological Equilibrium,” will give attendees tips they can use to help keep our air and water clean.
The talk will be followed by an art gallery walk and closing artist reception with Carin Wagner and Yvonne Parker, who shared their complementary artistic visions of our impact on nature through paintings, sculptures and prints in an exhibit titled “The Nature of Impermanence” over the summer.
Remaining items from the exhibit will be on sale with prices ranging from $150 to $30,000. A percentage of proceeds from the sale of Wagner’s art will benefit the MacArthur Beach State Park’s natural science education programs as well as the Marshall Foundation’s education fund.
Wagner’s alluring paintings of nature remind us of the cycles of life and that nature and individuals are in a constant state of evolution and renewal. Parker’s sculptures transform vintage materials into contemporary statements of beauty, truth and love as viewed through personal and philosophical lenses.
The Art Gallery at Eissey Campus is located in the first floor of the BB building, 3160 PGA Blvd. For more information, call the gallery at 561-207-5015.
