Artists in the Making

Polk County Conservation and The Galleries at Jester Park Nature Center are pleased to present, Artists in the Making. This art exhibition highlights the work of local college student, Holly Majerus as well as the creative works of North Polk's 7th Grade.

About the Artists

Holly Majerus is a freshman at the University of Iowa and graduate from Southeast Polk High School. The majority of her work was created during her high school art classes. She has had work displayed at the Iowa State Fair in the youth fine art section. She has also had the honor of one of her drawings being chosen for the Summer 2019 Portfolio Art Show.

North Polk 7th graders, under the direction of Virginia Rose, have been studying the artistic style of Charley Harper. They have selected animal and plant species native to Iowa and created simplified collages mimicking Charley Harper’s style.

FREE to the public
