Youth Artists invited to Participate in Exhibit at Nature Centre

“Inspired by Nature” sponsored by Rotary Club of Lethbridge East

The Helen Schuler Nature Centre is inviting youth artists to participate in the next community art gallery exhibition “Inspired by Nature.” Anyone in Alberta under the age of 18 is invited to express interest and submit work as part of the display sponsored by Rotary Club of Lethbridge East. Submissions must be inspired by nature and can be art (drawing, painting, sketching, etc), music, photography, videography, or creative writing.

“The Nature Centre’s community art gallery is a fantastic venue for creative expression – we are always seeking artists interested in exhibiting their nature or environmental themed artwork,” says Curtis Goodman, Resource Development Coordinator with the Helen Schuler Nature Centre, “Inspired by Nature will be the third youth art gallery exhibition delivered in partnership with Rotary Club of Lethbridge East.”

Prospective participating artists are asked to submit an expression of interest before August 31, 2018 with details on their work. This will help gallery organizers plan the exhibition and accommodate all of the entries. Visit the Nature Centre’s website for more information on how to participate: https://www.lethbridge.ca/Things-To-Do/Nature-Centre/Pages/Inspired-by-Nature.aspx

The exhibition itself will run September 11 thru November 4, 2018. It will feature a mix of indoor and outdoor installations as part of this year’s Art Walk. A Gallery Closing reception will be held on October 30, 2018 and will provide an opportunity to recognize the amazing submissions and award prizes to "Best in Show."

Families are encouraged to make the most of summer by spending time outside together and encouraging closer connections with nature! Time spent in in the great outdoors will provide many fantastic memories as well as ample opportunities to create original art to display as part of the “Inspired by Nature” youth art gallery exhibition.
