Presented by the White Bear Center for the Arts (WBCA), “Into Nature” features 95 artworks inspired by the outdoors, created in eight countries between March – June 2020.

“Never has art been so essential in connecting us to each other and expressing our human experience,” says Suzi Hudson, WBCA Executive Director. “Never has nature felt so necessary to finding hope, inspiration, and a sense of solace. As in nature, we are reassured that all seasons eventually change.

“In providing ‘Into Nature’ at this time, it is our hope that you will find both; the comfort of nature, and a reverberating connection to our shared need for beauty and art, and its ability to express the inexpressible.”
