The Nature & Wildlife Exhibit is a stunning show of the magnificence and diversity of the natural world. More than 100 unique interpretations of the landscape, sea life, birds, florals, wild beasts and endangered species are expressed through original paintings, sculptures, fiber, photography and mixed media. It is a thought-provoking presentation of Creation at its finest. Profits from artwork sold during the exhibit benefit conservation efforts and art education.
All of the artwork is for sale. A portion of the sales from the exhibit benefit the art programs of the St. Augustine Art Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cultural arts organization, and Audubon Florida.
