At the reception, there will be an unveiling of Linda’s piece, “Endless,” inspired by Eagle’s Nest Open Space. Linda will donate the piece to the County for public display. The goal of the Larimer County Visual Artist Program is to showcase protected parks and open spaces within the County thru artistic expression from professional artists.
In Linda’s words, “I was inspired by the open vistas of Eagle’s Nest Open Space where the scents and sounds leave one feeling a sense of renewed purpose and energy. I am extremely excited to have been chosen for this honor. Interpreting and expressing the beauty found in nature is what drives my art and I enjoyed the process of creating a piece that represents a unique location in Larimer County and sharing that artwork with the public.”
Linda has been creating art quilts since 2001, serving as artist in residence at several national parks and exhibiting in numerous locations throughout Colorado and the U.S. You can learn more about Linda and her art by visiting her website at: http://www.lindabeachartquilts.com
