Reception and Talk: Saturday, April 1 from 1pm to 4pm
Washington Printmakers Gallery announces WILD about Spring, an exhibition by eco-artist Marian Osher, that celebrates both the beauty of spring and the importance of diversity in the natural world.
WILD about Spring presents a visual parade of colorful monotypes and paintings of wildlife. Photos of spring flowers and cherry blossoms mounted on wood circles seem to pop off the walls of the gallery. The natural world is resplendent with variety. Visitors bring the diversity of humanity to the exhibition.
“I invite people of all faiths, genders, ages, sizes, races, nationalities and ethnic origins to enjoy this exhibit and reflect on the importance of respect and appreciation for diversity in all species in nature.” Marian Osher
