Destination: Nature 2023

A juried art show featuring art inspired by 4,000 acres of protected lands in Harvard, Massachusetts

 To commemorate 50 years of preserving the town of Harvard’s unique character and natural resources, the Harvard Conservation Trust is partnering again with Fivesparks to celebrate art and nature with a juried art show.  This partnership will highlight the beauty of the Harvard lands and trails through the eyes of regional artists, while bringing awareness of both organizations’ efforts in the Town of Harvard.

This year’s theme for Destination: Nature — “Perspective” — offers artists the chance to explore multiple frames of reference to reveal the intricate web of life in nature.  Choosing from the perspectives of wildlife, trees, water, air or other elements captures the grandeur, the subtlety, and the profound interconnectedness of the world we all call home.  Selecting an abstract perspective, an artist may inspire viewers to interpret nature's essence through expressive brushstrokes and vibrant colors, conveying emotions and inner experiences rather than tangible forms.  From a romantic viewpoint, an artist might immerse us in the beauty and harmony of natural landscapes, or use realism to delve into meticulous details or flora and fauna with scientific precision.  A provocative artist might use perspective to confront challenging ecological issues, using their craft to inspire action for protecting or healing the planet.  Artists are free to interpret this theme in any way that captivates viewers' attention and imagination. 

Exhibit on view through January 6, 2024
