Native Treasures

Art and biodiversity meet in a global hotspot! Native Treasures is a juried exhibit featuring native species and/or landscapes of the Clinch Valley Bioreserve, a location in Southern Appalachia deserving to be recognized and preserved for its high biodiversity. Partnering with The Nature Conservancy, The Arts Depot hopes to raise money for direct conservation of terrestrial and aquatic habitats. The exhibit will feature a wide variety of media and depict many landscapes and native species within the region. Visitors to the exhibit can donate directly to The Nature Conservancy (TNC), or purchase high quality art, and The Arts Depot will donate a portion of the proceeds to TNC. There will be an opening reception on April 24, 2021 from 10 – 4, where some of the artists will be present. The exhibit runs from April 14 through June 5, 2021. Arts Depot hours are Wednesday – Saturday 10:00 – 4:00.
