CALL To ARTISTS

Nature Reconsidered 2022 Judged Art Competition and Exhibit

Exhibit Dates: September 21 – November 4

Public Reception: Saturday September 24th from 6-8 pm • Awards presented at 7 pm

This exhibition aims to explore the ever-changing relationship between humans and nature. Since time began, artists have documented, questioned, celebrated, and reimagined our relationship with the natural world. With man’s increasing impact on nature, whether in harmony or in conflict, this exploration is more relevant than ever. Nature Reconsidered seeks to draw out the diverse ways that nature is represented in art.

We welcome work that references, investigates, challenges, and/or celebrates our relationship with the natural world.

Work may contain images of people, man-made structures, or objects as they relate to, or make a statement about our relationship to nature.
