WABASHA —Wisconsin artist Jan Killian will be featured July 20 at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha. 

The Eagle Center will host a meet-and-greet with the artist in the Watershed Gallery after she does a live painting exhibition. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors will be able to watch Killian work on a new painting and learn about her art and process all day.

A selection of Killian's work titled "The Colorful Side of Nature" is now on exhibition in the Watershed Gallery at the Eagle Center. The exhibition features depictions of wildlife using the specialized medium of alcohol-based paint.

"We’re very excited to host Jan at the National Eagle Center," said Anna Christenson, Watershed Gallery curator. "Her work is beautiful and expressive and it will be a wonderful opportunity for our guests to gain insight into her art and inspirations."
