It is no wonder the Midwest is known best for it's picturesque scenery. It has beautiful farmlands, rolling hills and plains, lush forests, and so much architectural history...

However, it is often this easy association that turns a blind eye to the other elements of our region's more complex, and oft times most interesting, character. There is a subtlety and richness to our region's culture that encompasses a multi-faceted population, a wide breadth of human experiences, and a depth of intellectual pursuit.

While you will see works that celebrate our idyllic scenery, I hope you will also discover whimsy, melancholy, love, fear, and nostalgia. It was with these concepts in mind that the works for this regional exhibition were chosen.
