Nature/Nurture: Women’s History Month Art Exhibit

Celebrate Women’s History Month by viewing the Nature/Nurture Art Exhibit at Wistariahurst Museum in March! Artists identifying as female or nonbinary were asked how they viewed the theme of nature versus nurture. This debate centers around our genes and surroundings, with both factors playing a role in mental and physical well-being while shaping personalities. This exhibition showcases a variety of viewpoints on the complex interplay between nature and nurture. Some artworks delve into the powerful impact of genetics, examining how inherited traits and biological tendencies can shape a person’s path. Others highlight the nurturing side, underscoring the importance of upbringing, life experiences, and surroundings in defining one’s sense of self.

The jury selected five artists to showcase for the Nature/Nurture art exhibit: Anne Bradford Spencer, Deborah Yaffe, Shelsy Rodiguez, Camille Roos, and River Nation. The museum had so many wonderful submissions that more artists will be included as honorable mentions. These talented individuals delve into various mediums from photography to sculptures, showcasing their distinctive artwork in our gallery for everyone to appreciate, gather, and explore this year’s theme.

Staff at Wistariahurst Museum are so excited about this new exhibit that will be on display throughout March. We will host an artist talk/opening reception on March 12th, 2024 from 4:30 pm-6:30 pm with an artist panel at 5:30 pm. Gallery open hours will be Mondays from 10 am-2 pm and Tuesdays from 4:30 pm-6:30 pm! Admission to the artist talk and gallery open hours are free and available to everyone, ensuring everyone can enjoy this year’s theme for our Women’s History Month art show.
