Through June 24, the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast will host the Sarasota Nature Printers’ exhibit Nature’s Artistry, the Foundation has announced.

“Nature printing is an ancient art form that uses a variety of techniques to create art from materials found in nature,” a news release explains. The Sarasota Nature Printers, which is a chapter of the Nature Printing Society, meets monthly from October through March, creating nature prints on various substrates such as paper, fabric, clothing, linens, silk, rugs, tile, wood, leather, and clay, the release adds.

“Featuring the work of 12 different artists, Nature’s Artistry, promises to be a unique art experience for the nature lover,” the release points out.

The hours for the exhibit are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Foundation’s headquarters is in the Burrows-Matson House located at 400 Palmetto Ave. in Osprey.

The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast “protects land and water in Southwest Florida for the benefit of people and nature,” the release adds. “Working with landowners, businesses, and government, Conservation Foundation saves land forever, protecting those special places that make this region extraordinary.
