For millennia artists have looked to the natural world for inspiration as well as a source of art media with which to create. As mankind has advanced through the centuries his art materials have come from increasingly industrial sources and the connections with raw, natural substances has diminished. This exhibition seeks to present work created from media that is close to or directly form its original, natural source and utilized in progressive, interesting ways.

All media in 2D & 3D form will be considered, 2D work must be suitably framed and have all hardware ready for hanging. All
other work must be installation ready. Specific installations are the artist’s responsibility under the direction of F.A.C. staff.
