Trio Con Brio – A Swedish Trio
It all began in 2001, when Jan Holmgren got the idea of putting together a trio consisting of one flute, one oboe and a piano. Trio con Brio was born, and today the trio consists of Carina Cederwall – flute and vocal, Jan Holmgren – oboe / English horn and vocal, and Stig Andersson – piano / arrangements and vocal. They were all educated at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. Their repertoire goes from classical music to well known hymns via jazz, musicals and film music. Composers they have on their music list are Winkler, Grieg, Nielsen, Gershwin, Kreisler, Mozart, Beethoven and Fauré. This will be the trio’s third visit to the Redlin Art Center and they always delight the audience! Admission is free.

Annual Veterans Day Print Giveaway
As a proud American, Terry Redlin has dedicated his life to honoring Veterans. He, like many Americans, has experienced the pride and then heartbreak of losing a loved while serving in our
Armed Forces. His personal story is detailed in his collection of seven paintings called “An American Portrait”. On Veterans Day, it has become a tradition to honor those Veterans visiting the Redlin Art Center with a small complimentary print. Note: The complimentary print is available to all servicemen and servicewomen who are able to physically visit the Redlin Art
Center and show a military identification card. The Redlin Art Center is not able to mail prints or give prints to family members of Veterans unable to visit.

Terry Redlin Conservation Park
The 30 acres surrounding the Redlin Art Center have undergone a dramatic transformation. The grassy area has been excavated to create numerous waterways, earth has been molded and shaped into hills and valleys, and trees have been strategically placed. This is Terry Redlin's vision - many refer to the park as Redlin's living painting. With each carefully positioned stake, Redlin has defined the contour of the landscape just as he does each time his paintbrush touches canvas - only this time, we have been able to watch his creation develop.
Guests of the park are invited to stretch their legs, walk their pets, have a picnic, or simply enjoy nature. Corn feeders are positioned throughout the park for those who wish to feed our friendly geese!
With an "eye" that only a true artist has, Redlin has created his idea of a perfect accompaniment to his son's carefully designed building. The park, officially titled, "Terry Redlin Conservation Park", is meant to enhance the visits of the thousands of travelers that stop at the Redlin Art Center each year. With over one mile of walking trails, 8 bridges, 6 small gazebos, one large gazebo and the Redlin Pavilion, guests of the park are invited to stretch their legs, walk their pets, have a picnic, or simply enjoy nature.
It is Redlin's wish that the wetlands and waterways he has created and enhanced will be full of
wildlife. Wood duck houses and blue bird houses have been carefully positioned. There may even be opportunities to watch pheasant, grouse, and perhaps even an occasional turkey. The natural areas have been seeded with prairie grasses and wildflowers to provide cover and food for the animals that make the park their home.The walking trails wind throughout the different areas in the park from the formal groomed areas leading to the Pavilion to the natural areas that lead to the outskirts of the property. Redlin hopes that visitors will find the park a relaxing experience that will allow them to collect their thoughts and enjoy the great outdoors - that is, after all, what inspires Terry Redlin each and every day.
