“Embrace Open Space recognizes and celebrates the work of artists who receive inspiration from the natural world,” said Dulcie F. Flaharty, executive director of the lands trust. “We hope their vision inspires all of us to remain vigilant and energetic in safeguarding these special places.”
The show, curated by artist Susannah Hart Thomer, is intended to reflect the trust’s mission to preserve and connect natural areas, farmland, and neighborhood green spaces to a clean and abundant water supply and to the health of the region’s economy.
Exhibit sponsors include Univest Corporation, Pennsylvania Land Trust Association, Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and Robert H. Erb.
The trust, a non-profit organization established in 1993, was created in conjunction with the Montgomery County Open Space Program. It assists with the formation of private and public partnerships to find ways to save and preserve the county’s open spaces and natural resources.
