Urban Green and Blue

a collaboration with Preservation Worcester 

Urban Green and Blue is a juried exhibition of paintings featuring Worcester’s urban green and blue spaces: the city’s public parks, wildlife sanctuaries, nature reserves, publicly accessible reservoirs, lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. This exhibition gives ArtsWorcester artist members an opportunity to work outdoors in a plein air tradition, and highlights the importance of public green and blue spaces to the health and well being of city residents.

Urban Green and Blue will take place in Preservation Worcester's Park View Room in the fall of 2021, and is a collaboration between Preservation Worcester and ArtsWorcester, funded in part by the Worcester Arts Council.

Congratulations to these selected artists who will partake in this exhibition!
