Learn about the birds and the bees at the Lubeznik Center of the Arts

The Birds & Bees group exhibition is coming to the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City.

The new Birds & Bees group exhibition will flutter into the Hyndman, Brincka/Cross and Susan Block galleries at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in downtown Michigan City.

An opening reception with light bites will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Feb. 2. Admission is free, and attendees can meet the artists.

“Ten artists share their personal interpretations and connections to birds or bees through drawing, printmaking, painting, sculpture, mixed media, installation and video,” the Lubeznik said in a news release. “This exhibit celebrates these creatures while bringing awareness to their environmental plight.”

The exhibit features the work of Chicago-based artist Aimee Beaubien, Kimberly Beck from Evanston, Karen Bondarchuk from Kalamazoo, Ladislav Hanka from Kalamazoo, Kelly Heaton from Virginia, Kristina Knowski from Porter, Lauren Levato Coyne from Evanston, Laura Marie Panozzo from Long Beach, Stephanie Metz from San Jose and Aimee Tomasek from Kouts.

The group show will run from Jan. 29 through June 2 at the art gallery at 101 W. 2nd St #100 between downtown and the lakefront. The Lubeznik also will showcase student work in the new Absorbing the Abstract: Student Works From LCA at the NIPSCO Art Education Studio.

The Lubeznik is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays to Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
