About Nature Nurture:
Nature / Nurture highlights the work of seven artists, focusing on pieces that explore – through form, material, subject, and concept – our complicated, interdependent relationship with the natural world. Whether through still-life painting or landscape photography, a focus on natural materials, or use of animals and plant life as subject matter, these artists utilize nature as a relatable vehicle for communicating ideas and emotions and building forms which can connect with the viewer on a universal and, at times, primal level. The work in the exhibition grapples with the unique connection we each have with the natural world and reveals discoveries embedded in that bond. Over 60 works in a large variety of mediums will be displayed. More info about the exhibition and each artist can be found here.
“We hope that visitors leave with a sense of appreciation for talent and creativity of our showcased artists. These artists utilize nature as a relatable vehicle for communicating ideas and emotions, and we hope conversations can be started about our relationship with the natural world. Further, we hope visitors will interact with art made from unexpected materials and gain a new appreciation for the beauty found in everyday life.” – Roberta Burns, ArtFields Marketing Director
