Palustris: Celebrating Longleaf Through the Arts
Campbell House Galleries, Southern Pines, NC
April 6-30, 2021
The longleaf pine ecosystem is among the most biologically diverse and among the most threatened. This exhibit celebrates a wide range of species of trees, plants, birds, mammals, fish, insects, reptiles, and amphibians that are integral to the North Carolina Sandhills Longleaf Pine Ecology. Red-cockaded woodpecker, Sandhills blazing star, wire grass, pitcher plant, Sandhills spiny crawfish, and pine barrens tree frog are just a few of the species you will encounter in these artworks and illustrations. We also endeavor to showcase the broad range of artistic styles within the group, and the wide variety of media available to artists and illustrators in general.
