Inspired by Nature: Youth Art Exhibit

September 26th, 2023 - November 4th, 2023

In partnership with Rotary Club of Lethbridge East and the Friends of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Society, we are proud to present the work of the next generation of artists. This annual showcase of creative expressions from youth aged 18 and under will be on display in the Community Art Gallery at the Nature Centre in Fall 2023.

Participating artists are invited to “find their muse” in nature, then create something that would inspire others to spend more time outside.

“We know that spending time in nature is important for everyone,” says Fran Leggett, president of the Rotary club. “We want the ‘Inspired by Nature’ exhibition to provide a fun way to celebrate youth who explore the outdoors, reflect on their experiences, and encourage others to do the same.”

Submissions can be mixed media, including: art, music, photography, videography, or writing.
