Anderson exhibition opens at refuge
Idaho wildlife artist Ed Anderson kicked off the 75th anniversary celebration of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge last summer with an eight-week artist “in residence” educational program, in which he gathered inspiration during daily visits to the Sanibel refuge. The results of the inspiration – about a dozen paintings and art journal entries – are now on exhibit in the Visitor & Education Center auditorium. An opening reception was held on Feb. 25 with an appearance by Anderson, including a “live paint” performance. The exhibition will be on display through April 24. Admission to the center is free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday through Thursday.
