Reading the Ridges an art exhibit featuring original work inspired by The Ridges will be on display at the Door Community Auditorium’s Link Gallery in Fish Creek from March 1st to April 12th, 2010.

The exhibit will include photographs, watercolors, oils, and pastels, as well as dimensional works in wood, glass, metal, and clay in a wide variety of styles and personal expressions.
Fifty Door county artists have created works reflecting the pristine beauty and ecological character of The Ridges Sanctuary, Wisconsin’s oldest membership based nature sanctuary and the most biologically diverse area in the state. Ancient shorelines of Lake Michigan form the ridges and swales creating a unique environment abundant with wildflowers such as ladyslippers and fringed gentians, as well as pristine forests and wetlands. The Ridges Sanctuary is home to the Federally endangered Hine’s Emerald dragonfly and has been a place of inspiration and reflection for more than 73 years.
