The Vineyard Conservation Society and Featherstone Center for the Arts are hosting a new exhibit called Love it. Protect it. MV. that celebrates nature and open space. The art exhibit continues through June 27.

On Wednesday, June 16 from 4 to 5 p.m. there will also be a Love it. Protect it. MV. discussion under the trees at Featherstone featuring executive director Ann Smith in conversation with Geraldine Brooks, Cindy Kane and Vineyard Conservation Society director Brendan O’Neill.

The event centers around how nature inspires artists, and how in turn their artwork inspires others to cherish and protect nature.

The event is free but capacity is limited. To register call 508-693-1850 or email
