Virtual Opening Reception & Tribute to John Seerey-Lester
Artists for Conservation International Exhibit of Nature in Art features 60 paintings and sculptures that awaken our responsibility to conserve the diversity and wonder of our natural world. Paintings and sculptures tell stories of natural diversity that is being lost and human factors affecting it. Art can play a critical role in informing and emotionally connecting the public to wildlife and driving a change for the better. Opening virtually on March 12th, 2021 6PM - 8PM (Virtual Reception).
Curator of Art, Emily Kapes will provide an introduction to Artists for Conservation International Exhibit of Nature in Art and Jeff Whiting, President of Artists for Conservation will speak about the artists and specific pieces. Then join us for a special conversation between Museum Founder Tom James and artist Suzie Seerey-Lester as they share memories of Suzie's husband John Seerey-Lester (1945-2020), who was an active member of Artists for Conservation.
