Strand Art Gallery

Snakes: The Art and Science
A multi-media presentation by Herpetologist/Nature Photographer/Artist
Lisa Powers, Froghaven Farm

July 28, 2012
1:00-3:00 pm
The Strand Art Gallery & Theater, Hohenwald, TN

Come learn about snakes with herpetologist Lisa Powers as she uses her photography and artwork to portray these misunderstood and under appreciated creatures with a love and passion for them that may make you think differently about them when you leave. Enjoy a Presentation and Lecture from 1:00 –2:30 then take time to enjoy Lisa’s unique artwork, jewelry and photography.

Lisa moved to middle Tennessee 26 years ago from the beautiful mountains of southwest Virginia. She received her B.S. degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Science from Tennessee Tech in 1991 and continued her studies at Austin Peay State University where she studied Biology with an emphasis in Herpetology (the study of amphibians and reptiles). Lisa is the Founding President of the Tennessee Herpetological Society and a current member.

Lisa owns Froghaven Farm where she uses her talents to design posters, websites and handouts on Tennessee plants and animals. She is also a frequent contributor of articles and photographs to the Tennessee Conservationist Magazine and Tennessee Wildlife. Her photos are featured in nature centers around the state of Tennessee, as well as throughout the U.S., and around the world. She also has photographs included in quite a few books on reptiles and amphibians.

Lisa will have a few of her slithery friends with her in case you want to get up close and personal in a safe environment. Admission cost is $5.00.

Thanks Mike! Sometimes it takes the most unlikely looking people, doing the most unlikely things in the most unlikely way to open peoples eyes! I certainly fit that job description :shock:

The 'Review' is in. This guy did a pretty good job for the most part. I do wish he had mentioned going straight to the hospital though if bitten :roll:
