Nature in Art Series Featured in Oklahoma City!

Celebrating the Beauty of Art – and the Nature in it

Nature in Art

Can you imagine walking through an art museum and not seeing any trees? No mountains or streams, sunrises or sunsets? No birds or horses? No boats on rough waves or relaxing landscapes?

It’s impossible, because nature is everywhere in art – from the literal to the abstract inspiration provided by the textures, colors and sounds of the natural world. Being outdoors can lift our spirits and stoke our creativity. The beauty of nature reflected in art is just another reminder of our need to protect it.

Each Nature in Art Series exhibit will feature nature-inspired work by local artists and be on display at The Nature Conservancy’s Oklahoma City office (408 NW 7th St.) for opening and closing nights. In between these two events, the auctions will be posted online for two weeks. Thirty percent of proceeds will go right back to nature by benefiting The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma!
