Nature as Muse

Exhibition Dates: April 6th – June 8th, 2024  //  Opening Reception: Saturday, April 6th 3-7pm

Since the earliest days of humankind, people have been making art. From the beginning until now, the natural world has been a major source of inspiration. Some artists only wish to replicate the beauty of what they see in nature and others put their own stamp on things, modifying color or form for more impact or to personalize their vision. Abstraction can be a way to express the feelings of an artist about some aspect of nature without actually depicting it. This exhibition explores the full gamut, from antique traditional landscapes to contemporary visions of natural phenomena, to non-objective abstractions inspired by nature.

Featuring Douglas Ballou, Catherine Daley, Robin Dintiman, Holly Downing, Molly Eckler, Pamela Glasscock, James Ford Grant, Tim Haworth, Iva Hladis, Jill London, Carolyn Lord, Lucy Martin, Carol Peek, Michael Ramos, Stephanie Sanchez, Steve Swentson and Inna Talantova. And as usual a selection from our vintage collection.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 6th from 3-7pm. The exhibition will run April 6th through June 8th, 2024
