Gallery 1313 and the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation are seeking interest in showcasing work of visual artists in an exhibition focusedon the Greenbelt. We are looking for artists to share their ideas of what the Greenbelt means to them and how its green spaces and agricultural lands have impacted them. We are specifically seeking artists who have linved in, spent time in and been strongly impacted by Ontario's Greenbelt as a source of inspiration.
We wish to explore the notion of nature which is on the edge of an urban landscape, and how it shapes our identify as Ontarians. The exhibit will explore how the Greenbelt calls to us, nurtures us, soothes us and challenges us. We are looking for meaningful, thought-provoking dialogue on how the Greenbelt connects the urban, the rural, the city and nature.
