"Drawing On Nature" opens at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science

Albuquerque, NM—Venture into the woods and wilds with the exhibition, Drawing On Nature, on display through September 12th, 2010. Featuring the work of 33 female artists, including scientists, writers, photographers, designers, teachers, and wilderness guides, Drawing on Nature showcases a stunning collection of nature journals that are as unique and varied as the women themselves.

A melding of art and science, nature journals are rooted in observation of the world around and the world within, full of direct responses to nature, unedited, and usually private. This exhibition is a rare opportunity to view the sketches, paintings, and written observations of such renowned artists as Ann Zwinger, Clare Walker Leslie, and Albuquerque resident Margy O’Brien. Drawing on Nature is sure to enhance your next outdoor adventure, and inspire you to create your own personal field guide this summer.
