About the Event

The Pollinators: An Artistic Celebration of Plants, Pollinators, and Habitats

Artist Talk | April 20 | 12:30pm - 1:30 pm | Jack Sinclair Gallery

In the face of a rapidly declining natural world, “The Pollinators” emerges as a poignant tribute to the intricate ecosystems that sustain life on our planet. This juried art exhibition dares to shine a spotlight on the often-overlooked marvels of flora and fauna, urging us to rekindle our connection with the natural world.

Thirty artists — painters to sculptors to mixed media, from Atlanta to Boston to New York —  were selected to show their works that serve as a reminder of our shared responsibility to nurture and protect the precious web of life that sustains us all. The top three will receive cash awards during the recption with guest judge K. Joy Ballard Peters. 

At the heart of this exhibition lies a powerful message — a plea to combat the phenomenon of “plant blindness” that plagues modern society.
