Search for Essence
Visitors to the facility have an unprecedented opportunity to see The Wildlife Experience Art Gallery collection in its entirety. Over one hundred wildlife paintings and sculptures by internationally acclaimed nature artists such as Robert Bateman, John Banovich, John Seerey-Lester, Morten Solberg, Kent Ullberg and Bart Walter are now shown together in the elegant 7,000 sq ft exhibit space. Works by renowned artists from our region such as Gerald Balciar, Kenneth Bunn and Veryl Goodnight, among others, create a stunning display. The contemplative environment hosts reading and rest areas to ponder quotations by the artists that inspire concern and appreciation for the natural world, or provide insights to the artists' philosophy and motivation. Dave and Gail Liniger established this notable collection over a period of several decades by collecting works by artists they knew and admired. When they founded The Wildlife Experience in 2002, their gift of a large number of important wildlife art pieces provided the basis of the collection which continued to expand with gifts from the Linigers and other generous donors over the past 14 years. In addition to Search for Essence, the exhibit on view in the gallery, the art collection extends to additional sculpture on display in the facility, its courtyard and along the nature trail surrounding the facility.
The Wildlife Experience Art Gallery offers a wonderful experience for all who visit.
