Exhibit details »
Since the Green Man Festival began nine years ago, artists have connected their imagination to the sights and sounds of our natural world. Surrounded by our majestic green forests and simpler green spaces found at the edge of the built world where the Green Man lives, it is easy to uncover images that inspire. This annual art show at the New Deal Cafe shows us how Mother Earth has inspired visual artists. Stop by to see some Earth friendly photography and paintings, learn some history and celebrate our heritage.
Join us for a public reception on Sunday, June 2, with music by The Homestead Act. Come and meet the artists from 7-9pm!
Artists — learn how to have your own exhibit!
