Join us in June 2015 as we hold our second annual art exhibit, Nature's ARTcade. Last year, more than 500 people visited Flag Ponds Nature Park in Lusby to see the work of 50 artists from across the region exhibition at Flag Ponds Nature Park in Lusby.
Calvert Nature Society, in support of the Calvert County Division of Natural Resources, organizes the exhibition to showcase artwork inspired by the natural world of Southern Maryland. Accompanying the juried exhibition is an exhibition by Calvert County art students.
