"Dialogue with Nature: Visual and Literary Expressions" is an exhibition of artworks of all media exploring any relationship between the artist and nature.

Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists and writers, and this multi-media show celebrates the many facets of this enduring relationship.

With a range of photographs, watercolors, sculptures, oil paintings and literary works, Dialogue with Nature unites these artists in their belief of nature’s profound and spiritual effect on the creative endeavor.

"It is my deep belief that human beings are constantly in search of beauty. Be it physical, spiritual or on any other level.

Nature provides us with unlimited source of inspiration and wisdom, which sadly today’s modern high-tech world has forgotten…," Julia Kozlyansky, participating artist.
