The Art of Stewardship: Preview Reception

May 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us in the Gudelsky Gallery for the preview reception of our 2017 Art of Stewardship exhibit! Be among the first to see the nature-inspired artwork created and donated by professional artists, local celebrities, community members, and exceptional art students.

Attending the preview reception gives you the opportunity to enter the raffle for buyer positions #1-10 to purchase the artwork of your choice (tickets are $5 apiece, sold at the event). After that, art sales will be on a first come, first served basis.

A truly unique art sale: this year all entries are 10”x10” and not visibly signed – fall in love with a piece of art without knowing the artist who made it! All artwork will be on sale for $100, and all proceeds benefit the work of the Conservancy.

Wine and cheese will be served, and leaders from the Maryland art world and local community heroes will be present. Greg Mort, internationally acclaimed artist and founder of The Art of Stewardship movement, will speak about the role of environmental stewardship in the arts. The show will be juried by Gino Molfino, Director of Fine Arts for the Howard County Public School System, and awards will be given out.The Art of Stewardship: Nature Through the Eyes of Artists celebrates the diversity of artistic expression in response to the natural world around us.
