Artist members of The Chestnut Group paint what they are passionate about preserving; fragile local environments, threatened habitats, protected natural areas, and historic properties. The group welcomes artists of any skill level who enjoy painting en plein air, and those interested in conservation efforts in Middle Tennessee.

  • Opportunities to exhibit and sell personal work
  • Invitations to paint on scenic private property, remote areas and venues closed to the general public
  • The camaraderie, informal learning, and self-discovery come by spending time with a community whose passions and conservation ideals are alike
