The Westwood Land Trust (“WLT”) is sponsoring the seventh 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 250 Westwood community members typically view the wide variety of artwork submitted by students and residents on the evening of the exhibit. Exhibited items last year included: fruit and vegetable drawings displayed as the Westwood Farmers’ Market; pueblo pots; blown glass; pottery; patterned collage animals; 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.
