A Face of Nature by TJ Feeley.

Opening Day: Friday, March 4 from 12pm to 9pm

The Flora & Fauna art exhibit at Del Ray Artisans gallery explores the interdependence of plants and animals, combining art and environmental science. In recent years, climate change and pollution have endangered the complex interactions between plants and animals.

Pollinators (birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles, and other small mammals) are vital to creating and maintaining the habitats and ecosystems that many rely on for food and shelter. Plants like almond trees, berry bushes and flowers need pollinators to survive and reproduce. Large animals, like giraffes and elephants, rely on plants for food, shelter, and shade to protect them from the environment and predators. This art exhibit is focused on exploring and showing these connections.

Join them on opening day, Friday, March 4 between 12-9pm for the widest selection of artwork. Mark your calendar now or set a reminder through Eventbrite.
