ART | 'Nature as Muse' 

Rochester-based fiber artist Victoria Connors has since August of 2016 been traveling the country visiting National Parks, documenting breathtaking landscapes through plein air needle felting — think open-air painting, but with colorful masses of wool poked and prodded into a picture. The resulting soft images contain a striking amount of depth and drama, and showcase the diverse vistas of this massive nation's parks, from stone arches in the desert to tall palms swaying in balmy skies. Connor's work will be shown this month at Patricia O'Keefe Ross Art Gallery, alongside work by St. John Fisher students. Connors will donate a percentage of sales to the National Parks Service.

"Nature as Muse" is presented at Patricia O'Keefe Ross Art Gallery, Joseph Skalny Welcome Center at St. Johns Fisher College, 3690 East Avenue. Monday, July 9, through Friday, September 7. A reception will be held Friday, July 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. Free. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 385-8190; sjfc.edu. Preview her work at victoriaconnors.com.
