Biophilia means human affinity for nature and the living world. As physical/spiritual beings, we are drawn to certain environments that deeply affect us. For many, the North Shore is that kind of landscape which roots us in something greater and more meaningful.

In this themed show and sale, we invite artists to use the media of your choice to explore the interplay between the geographical outer world and the inner spiritual terrain. Here are a few things to think about as you prepare: How does the landscape of the North Shore inform your life internally/externally? What is the sacred meaning of the North Shore landscape and why does it inspire you? How does it contribute to your sense of place, home and community?

We hope to keep the theme broad enough for a wide variety of interpretations and creativity, but, for further prompts or information, contact the Art Colony at 218-387-2737 or
