ART RECEPTIONS AND EXHIBITIONS
Intersection of Art & the Environment
The Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center Art Gallery hosts several exhibitions each year. A partnership with the United Arts Council of Collier County (UAC) enables annual exhibitions of painting and photography juried by local art experts while other shows feature works by local students, Reserve friends & family, or featured artists. Most of the works are available for purchase.
- The Reserve and UAC work together to promote the arts and the environment. While applied science is the focus of most Reserve activities, we acknowledge that there are many pathways toward greater understanding of the natural world.
- Our Art Gallery creates an opportunity for people to increase their sense of wonder for nature by stimulating and celebrating personal expression through the visual arts.
