The Westwood Land Trust is hosting the 10th annual Capturing Nature in Westwood Art Exhibit to raise awareness and appreciation for our community’s beautiful natural environment. Residents have been encouraged to go outside, look around and explore, and “capture” the natural beauty one sees through a painting, 3-D piece, photograph, or any other preferred artistic medium.
The public is invited to the opening reception to view the exhibit on Thursday, October 27th, at the Westwood Public Library from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The exhibit will be on display through December 16. WLT would like to thank Katie Thurston, Westwood Public School Art Director, Sarah Sanchez and Robert Worth, both Westwood Middle School art teachers, Tricia Perry, Westwood Library Director, and Lisa Walker, Dedham Square Artist Guild, for helping make this event possible.
Founded in 1999, Westwood Land Trust is a charitable organization dedicated to preserving open space, forests, and habitat in Westwood. WLT works cooperatively with landowners who wish to retain their property in its undeveloped state by raising funds to buy development rights from landowners and by receiving and enforcing conservation restrictions on Westwood properties. WLT currently holds conservation restrictions that protect 215 acres of land in Westwood.
