The Huntsville Museum of Art is pleased to showcase a selection of artworks from its own permanent collection that explores aspects of the natural world we all inhabit. Some works are gifts from generous donors, while others were added through purchase. The Museum’s collection currently totals over 3,200 works of art, providing a rich resource for its curators to develop exhibitions such as these.

Nature’s Realm focuses on contemporary works of art from the collection whose subjects reference the landscape and its flora and fauna. The exhibition highlights a range of artistic “takes” on the theme, offering the viewer the opportunity to compare and contrast differing approaches to composition, subject matter, and storytelling. On view are paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, and three-dimensional works in glass, metal, wood, and ceramic. Works range stylistically from the hard-edged realism of Nall Hollis’ deconstructed flowers; to the softly color-drenched landscapes of George Cress; to the sheer abstraction of Pat Musick‘s mixed-media sculptures.

With this exhibition, we salute the depth and diversity of the Museum’s permanent collection and thank those artists whose works have enriched the cultural life of our region.
