Spindleworks will host an open call exhibit to benefit the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, set for July and August in Brunswick Maine. The exhibit The Forest Through the Trees is meant to draw attention to our living planet both to celebrate, and to raise awareness of the diversity of species, all of which are affected by our actions and inactions. This year artists are invited to submit work in any medium, inspired by and focusing on plant life, which is meant to draw attention to the importance of plants in creating natural habitat for the world’s species. We welcome diversity of artistic expression to reflect this huge part of our natural environment. This will be the sixth exhibit in the series, which has drawn artists from across Maine and across the country.
This year we have chosen the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust to receive the funds raised. We recognize the important role the land trust plays in protecting species in our local community. 30% from each sale will be donated to this important and well loved local organization. Additionally we are seeking donated items for a silent auction benefit at the opening July 15th.
