New exhibits at Michael Warren Contemporary and Mai Wyn Fine Art showcase artists who take inspiration from nature and share them in very different ways.

    Review: Taking Inspiration From Nature at Michael Warren and Mai Wyn
    Both Michael Warren Contemporary and Mai Wyn Fine Arts are showing works by artists inspired by nature. While none of these four artists attempts to render the landscape, all find inspiration in scenery, and then share that inspiration in very different ways.
