“Spring Dance” is a virtual exhibit inspired by season of Spring.

“Spring dance” collection as a whole is meant to be for anyone who is interested in learning about nature, to slow down and really appreciate the beauty of Spring season in every brush stroke, print or sculpture, in art work from the past as well as the present. It will hopefully serve as a reminder to anyone that respect for our nature should be just as important now as it was to the past civilizations. We have much to learn from the artists who provide their vision and their ability to conserve and cherish the nature while creating works that inspire people near and far.
