"Naturally Connected" McMaster Art Exhibit and Auction

Mar 21 - 23, 2014 | 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm | Togo Salmon Hall, McMaster University

"Naturally Connected" is a juried exhibition of local artwork creating awareness and support for the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System. The exhibition will be running March 21, 22, and 23 in the gallery space of Togo Salmon Hall, McMaster University. This exhibit is unique in that the students of McMaster are to host the event. The works selected will also be open to a silent auction where 20%, 50%, or 100% of the proceeds of each work sold will be donated towards the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System. As many as 20 artists will participate in the exhibition with works selected by an independent jury. The theme of selected artworks will pertain to the Cootes to Escarpment vision, incorporating key ideas and motifs.

The vision  for the Cootes to Escarpment Park System is that it will be known internationally as a protected, permanent, and connected natural lands sanctuary from the Harbour to the Escarpment that promotes ecosystem and human health within Ontario's Greenbelt. The mission  will be to collaboratively continue preserving and enhancing the natural lands using a sustainable approach that balances natural ecosystem health with responsible human appreciation and activities to achieve the vision.
