This past weekend was the Opening of "Forever Yours, The Land" which featured over 60 local artists at installations throughout Colorado Springs. The exhibit is city-wide and showcases the beauty of our natural surroundings through a variety of art mediums to boost awareness of conservation.
Palmer Land Trust, the sponsor of the event, is a not for profit conservation organization working to protect the places we treasure. Since 1977, they've helped individuals and communities permanently protect over 80,000 acres of public open spaces, historic farms and ranches, important wildlife habitat, and beautiful scenic vistas.
Above are two of the walls in the Summerland Gardens Upstairs Gallery that Dottie Lirette and I have as part of this event. Hope that those of you who live in the area can stop by the Gallery from now through September 9th to see what happens when art and nature collide!
