Evelyn Rensing Kochansky has instilled and modeled creative discipline and a love of nature in her children and grandchildren, since their childhoods, and these creative forces have often taken the forms she loved, drawing, needle arts, and writing. These inspirations, hand and pen, and their power in all our dealings, are the focus of this show. Evelyn, at 95, is also the inspiration for the Rensing Center, where she lives and continues to influence the many guests who are drawn to this art/ science residency program from all over the world.
