MAPS Capturing Nature Photography Exhibit
Tall Grass Gallery will present works by members of the Morton Arboretum Photographic Society (MAPS) from January 22 through February 26, 2022. The Gallery will hold an Opening Reception on Saturday, January 22 from 1 – 3pm. All are welcome to view the exhibit and meet the artists that afternoon.
Capturing Nature is an exhibit filled with powerful vistas of towering mountain ranges, immense canyons, rushing waterfalls, sun streaming through endless miles of dense forests, and shimmering glacial ice formations. On view as well are intimate views of baby birds, delicate flowers, frosted leaves, and shadowy animals peeking through branches. All of this within seasonal changes and a broad range of viewpoints. All of it surrounding us with the enormity, complexity, and breath-taking beauty of nature.
The Morton Arboretum Photographic Society (MAPS) is a community of artists dedicated to exploring and detailing the world through photographic images. The Society is composed of professional and amateur photographers who freely share their expertise and passion for nature and the art of capturing compelling and artistic images.
