Nature in Visual Art

December 5, 2014

This exhibition is a two-part presentation of nature and environmental themes depicted in paintings and drawings in various sizes, media, and styles. The first component is a collection of artwork produced by artists who have participated in the Artists in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE) program. As a traveling exhibition, the AIRIE collection has been curated by Irene Christensen and Donna Marxer and was previously shown at the Galleri Schaeffers Gate 5 in Oslo, Norway. The second component features artwork by Pat Bretano, a NJ based visual artist and 2008 Puffin Grant recipient. Pat’s works reflect observation, exploration, and a deep spiritual attachment to the natural world. Most recently she received the 2015 NJ Audubon Richard Kane Conservation Award.
