CALL for ENTRIES: Nature Undisturbed 2012
Call me closed minded, but there are somethings that I am not interested in eating. Nature is in my face here in the Great Smoky Mountains, and we eat local honey for its ability to help reduce our allergies. However, I am not drinking poison ivy tea everyday for 6 weeks to reduce my chance of breaking out in a rash. People do it. I went on a guided hike and listened to my naturalist explain the ritual to me. Call me crazy, but you shouldn’t eat anything whose name starts with “poison”. Some things ought not be disturbed. This Call for Entries is proof that others think the same. Read on…
Check out this Call for Entries from Dogwood Gallery for the 4th showing of Nature, Undisturbed. Here’s a chance to show your work and help out nature conservation at the same time. Bonus…last year they sold a significant portion of the work! Take a look…

CALL for ENTRIES:
Nature Undisturbed is a celebration of the natural world. The show brings together a diverse collection of photography showcasing the wonders of nature that many don’t take the time to see. It is the hope of the show creators that after viewing the photography, you are inspired to get out on the not-so-beaten path. Perhaps you happen to take along a camera to capture the light through the leaves and continue to enjoy that day each time you view the photo.
This is the show that brings the outside in for all to enjoy.
The exhibition showcases simple, majestic, beauty in nature, wildlife & local landscapes. Each unique image echos the sentiment “a picture is worth a thousand words,” a powerful reinforcement of the importance of greenspace & habitat protection for future generations of people & wildlife.
