opens tonight, Tuesday, October 28th at the Westwood High School

with a reception from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

The Westwood Land Trust (“WLT”) is sponsoring the eighth annual Capturing Nature in Westwood Art Exhibit to raise awareness and appreciation for Westwood’s beautiful natural environment. Residents are encouraged to go outside, look around and explore, and “capture” the natural beauty one sees through a painting, 3-D piece, photograph, or any other preferred artistic medium. All ages are invited to participate.

Over 300 Westwood community members typically view the wide variety of artwork submitted by students and residents on the evening of the event. Exhibited items last year included: birch tree paintings inspired by artist Gustav Klimt; clay relief postcards; dish glass inspired by Dale Chihuly; pottery; oil paintings and drawings; and nature-themed photographs. WLT would like to thank Katie Thurston, Westwood Public School Art Director, and all the WPS art teachers for their whole-hearted support in linking art and nature.
