The Open-Air Arts Initiative is excited to announce their second annual show, at the Blue Hill Public Library’s Britton Gallery, for the month of February. The Open-Air Arts Initiative is a collaboration between the Blue Hill Heritage Trust and Cynthia Winings Gallery. Its mission is to use nature to ignite creativity in the young people who live on the Blue Hill Peninsula.
A public reception for the exhibit will be held on Saturday, February 3rd from 3-5pm. Come learn more about Open-Air Arts Initiative, meet some of the incredible artists who submitted works for this year’s show and find out how to participate and submit works in our next exhibit.
The Open-Air Arts Initiative is a program, in which school aged young people on the peninsula (Pre-K through 12th Grade) may visit any conservation property and create something that expresses their inspiration from and connection to that place. All participants’ work, once submitted, will be displayed and celebrated at an art show in the next year.
The Initiative asserts: ‘Yes! be inspired, we believe that you are all creative and amazing, show us what you see out there, we think it’s amazing too!’
