Current Exhibition

Nature’s Story

Montsalvat – Barn Gallery

20 October – 13 November

Nature has the capacity to give life and destroy her own creations.  It’s no wonder we refer to the natural world as the great outdoors.

 

With this theme the artists take on the challenge of interpreting the incredible power found in nature.  

We are here to remind you, and ourselves, to take advantage of experiencing the elements. Soak up the sun, dance in the rain, and heal in the forests and waters.

Explore with us as we step out from behind window glass, and experience the majestic outside world.
