What have you seen lately in Nature that captivated you—something that
was so interesting you wanted to learn more about it? In this exhibit 22 artists share with you what they recently found captivating in the natural world. These artists pay close attention and work slowly as they study the subject. The subject holds their interest for hours! The shape, color, details discovered by close observation, all the additional information found in books and websites—all contribute to the artists’ attempt to share this captivation in
an art form.
