Finding Refuge in the Refuge

Tuesday, September 19th, 6:30 — 7:30 p.m.


Sara Lubinski, a landscape painter who lived in SE Minnesota until 2018, is excited to return to the Driftless Area where she intimately connected to the land and waterways through her work as an artist and botanist. Painting for her is a way of expressing what she finds beautiful and  helps her bear witness to our relationship with the planet. The Trempealeau Refuge is a special place to her, where she first began to develop her outdoor painting skills and her philosophical perspective on what it means to find connection in nature's most special places.
