Connect in Nature: Inspire our World – an evening with Robert Bateman
March 28 2019
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for an intimate evening in celebration of nature, with one of its most dynamic animal groups. Enjoy a relaxed cocktail reception with canapés in the waterfront Gallery overlooking Victoria’s beautiful Inner Harbour before taking a seat with world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman.
Robert will introduce the Gallery’s newest exhibition: Plumage – The Majestic Art of Birds – while also sharing some of the exciting changes coming to the Bateman Foundation and Gallery.
This unique exhibit, which features a collection of paintings, photography and sculpture, spans more than 150 years, and focuses on the ability for birds to reflect nature’s expression of colour, beauty and creativity. It features historically significant artworks by major North American naturalists and artists, as well as contemporary images by local wildlife photographers.
All proceeds support the gallery and educational programming of the Bateman Foundation, with the mission of reconnecting people to nature and conserving the natural world for future generations.
