This exhibition brings together artists who have been inspired by the natural world and its power to stimulate feelings of belonging, mental and physical wellbeing. Artworks consider a range of views from the romantic vision of nature as a therapeutic companion to a new contemporary era of ‘climate anxiety’ and its enormous global challenges.

Part of MAC's Art, Wellbeing and Nature season inspired by Cannon Hill Park's 150th anniversary.
