Brush with Nature

Brush with Nature 2024

In 2024, Maine Audubon is moving away from the plein air painting, gallery show, and fundraiser structure.  Instead, we invite you to participate in Brush with Nature Maker Day on Saturday, August 24, 10 am to 2 pm, at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. The event will be a casual day for families to come together and make art while enjoying nature. We will have a couple of activity stations for family participation, and materials for those who want them.  We hope that as an artist you would be able to come work during the event so visitors can be inspired by the creative process and understand the importance of art and nature together.

In September, we will host a juried show of works depicting Gilsland Farm. It is the 50th anniversary of Maine Audubon’s work taking place in this location, and we will be celebrating in multiple ways. These works are not limited to plein air landscapes created for the event. We would love to see submissions of recent work that connects to Gilsland Farm in some way. This show will be featured at the annual Portside Autumn Equinox event on September 19.

And finally, during the holiday season (mid-November 2024 to mid-January 2025), we will host another juried show of bird art. The details for both shows will be available in June and all updates will be posted on our website:

Thank you to all the artists and their past contributions to Maine Audubon and for sharing  creativity in support of our mission.
