The Contemporary Naturalism Guild of Art’s mission is to promote awareness of art that celebrates the true essence of nature, as realized by a contemporary eye. To encourage closer observation of the interconnectivity of all things in nature; from the grand scale of a landscape to the minute, sometimes overlooked, inhabitants of those landscapes.   

The Guild’s educational mission is to facilitate artistic expression of those observations by sharing our knowledge of our own connections to nature, gained from close observation, and to teach the necessary skills to achieve that goal by careful study and dedication to craft.

The Guild believes that fostering art that celebrates nature in all its forms will further the cause of preservation and conservation of the natural world that fuels our inspiration and creativity.
