Protected Landscapes: October 24, 2015

Nancy West, Artist, painting at Cedar Grove
Protected Landscapes is an art exhibit designed to bring conservation to the public through visual art. The exhibit will feature local artists and Virginia Eastern Shore Land Trust (VES Land Trust) permanently preserved land. This event both opens land for artists to work on and presents protected spaces to a larger audience.

“We are really excited about this exhibit and to share our conservation work in a new way,” said Peter Henderson, Executive Director.

The exhibit will provide viewers with an intimate experience of VES Land Trust protected lands through the eyes of local artists. “We are extraordinarily fortunate to have such a wealth of artistic talent on the Eastern Shore,” said Henderson.

At the opening night exhibit, viewers will have the chance to mingle with the artists and easement donors, discussing the art and the creative process as well as the land and protecting it.
