Species of Special Concern Gallery Exhibition

Species of Special Concern from artist Tanya Piatz is the current exhibition at the Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery.

Piatz is a self-taught artist who focuses on raising awareness for habitat conservation, and how the habitat directly impacts the diversity of species found in the environment. She does this by illustrating birds that we see every day, as well as lesser-known species, that are found on Minnesota’s DNR’s “Species of Special Concern” list.

The exhibition will run through May 19. Gallery hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
