Highland Community College art instructor Sam Tucibat poses with some of his works to be displayed November 1 and 2 during the Seasons on the Land exhibit at the Prairie Street Brewhouse in Rockford.

It's very gratifying for me to use the power of art to drive economic energy into worthy causes, and this cause is a perfect fit for me, said Tucibat. I create my compositions primarily from photographs of nature and architecture that are taken in the small towns, old-growth forest and backwaters of the Mississippi River in northwest Illinois.

The event is a fundraiser which benefits the Natural Land Institute of Northern Illinois. Additional activities during the two-day affair include live musical entertainment, silent auctions each night, a gourmet marketplace, complimentary appetizers and desserts, seasonal signature drinks and cash bar. Thirty percent of all art sales are donated to the organization.

Advance tickets are $25, or they will be $30 at the door. Admission is good for both days and includes appetizers/desserts, one beer/wine drink and entertainment. To purchase tickets and find more information about this event, visit http://www.naturalland.org.
