On Thursday, September 5, 2019, renowned artist Jan Dilenschneider will host a gallery showing of 26 specially created oil paintings in support of Mystic Aquarium’s mission. Dilenschneider’s goal, consistent with that of Mystic Aquarium, is to help people understand the importance of nature.

The collection can be viewed from 5:30pm – 7:30pm in the Marra Family Gallery located at the Milne Ocean Science and Conservation Center at Mystic Aquarium.

“I want people to fall in love with the beauty of nature again,” said Dilenschneider, who is fresh off her sixth exhibition in Paris. “I want my work to elicit an emotion in the viewer about the importance of preserving our ecology.”

A life-long artist, Jan Dilenschneider is inspired by the sea and landscapes surrounding her Connecticut home.

“I am an expressionist although I love the impressionist palate,” added Dilenschneider, whose chosen medium is oil.

Admission to the gallery showing in Milne Ocean Science and Conservation Center is complimentary on the evening of Thursday, September 5.
