Open-Air Arts Initiative- First Annual Show and Reception

The Open-Air Arts Initiative is excited to announce their first 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, Inspired! by Nature will be held on Saturday, February 11th 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. All artists are school aged members of the Peninsula community!

The Open-Air Arts Initiative is a self-driven program, in which school aged young people on the peninsula (Pre-K through 12th Grade) may visit any Blue Hill Heritage Trust trail or 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!’
