“Illustrating Wisconsin’s Wild Lakes,” original illustrations by Rebecca Jabs for John Bates’s book Wisconsin’s Wild Lakes, will be on view in the Steinhauer Trust Gallery in July and August.

The artwork catalogs the diversity of life supported by wild lakes and undeveloped shorelines. Jabs’s work honors subjects with scientific accuracy and celebrates the sense of wonder that inspires us to seek connection in nature. Close observations reveal compelling stories and relationships within natural communities.
