Nature Fest Artists’ Market: Art Inspired by Nature

(Wilmot, OH) – This summer, The Wilderness Center will be combining the Nature Fest Artists’ Market with the TWC Nature Photo Club’s Foto Fest on June 3 and 4, 2023 for a weekend of celebrating art that is inspired by nature.

Foto Fest includes photo submissions in the categories: Birds, Wildlife / Animals, Insects, Flowers, Landscapes, General Nature, Open, and Youth, which is a category for participants 18 and under. Visitors to TWC throughout the weekend can view the photos and participate in the People’s Choice awards by voting for their favorites.

Visitors are encouraged to pack a picnic and spend the day with TWC. This year’s Nature Fest Artists’ Market features local makers and gives visitors an opportunity to interact with some of TWC’s clubs, such as the Photography Club, Woodcarvers Club, and Backpackers and Hikers Club.
