Exhibition Opening: "We can never have enough of Nature."

I am very pleased to announce the opening of Still Point Art Gallery's online exhibition, "We can never have enough of Nature."

"We need the tonic of wildness -- to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground. At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be infinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.
            --Henry David Thoreau
