Talk scheduled for Friday evening.

The MGMoA Curator of Collections, Delaynna Trim, will be giving a gallery talk about the current exhibit, Organic: Exploring Nature Through Art, on Friday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. The gallery talk will touch on how nature can be symbolic in art.


This exhibition presents nature through the lens of various cultures and civilizations from the ancient Greek to Pueblo tribes to modern interpretations of nature. Visitors will encounter nature as expressed through pottery, basketry, paintings, etchings, and embroidery.


“This exhibit is much more than just landscapes and pretty flowers. It delves into the meanings behind some of the flowers and trees that artists choose. Also explored is how we have been drawn to nature and its grandeur for generations.” said Delaynna Trim, Curator of Collections at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art.
