Fourteen framed photographs of nature and animals taken in and around Boynton Beach are on display at the Civic Center, and Boynton is hosting an event Friday to honor the artist.

In her exhibit “Wild Capture-PhotoPoems,” Karen Christensen photographed nature and animals at places including Wakodahatchee, Green Cay Wetlands, Boynton Beach Oceanfront Park and the Everglades.

WHAT’S THAT?: The tallest piece of public art in the county is in Boynton Beach

At the ceremony, Christensen will perform readings of her PhotoPoems.

“Even though all of the images depict nature, the poems are inspirations that connect to the artist’s interpretation of today’s topical events or her inner reflections,” according to a news release.

Also at the event, local nature preserves will have information and materials about their organizations. Representatives from the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and the Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group will attend and be available for questions.

The exhibit will be open until Dec. 30. The reception is from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Civic Center, 128 E. Ocean Ave.
