Photographer Hazel Grant will be the newest art exhibitor at The Varsity. The exhibit opens Aug. 17 with a reception beginning at 5 p.m. The Varsity Bar will be open for purchases. The exhibit will remain up until Sept. 7.
The Varsity exhibit primarily focuses on nature, an interest that has grown because of the beautiful Southern Illinois landscapes, birds and animals.
Grant’s work has been chosen three times in the juried Shrode Photography Competition at Cedarhurst Center for the Arts in Mount Vernon, where she won first place and honorable mention. Her works have also been juried into the Art Through the Lens international exhibit three times and into that competition’s regional exhibit twice. Two of her pieces are displayed Southern Illinois Healthcare office at University Mall in Carbondale.
