NSLM Members join Tucker Smith, one of the most accomplished contemporary artists on the American outback, for an intimate gallery talk of his exhibition. Discover the natural beautify of Smith’s work as he takes participants through the galleries to discuss composition, color, style, techniques, and subjects. Click on the link here to learn more about the program. The open paint component of this program is being held at Dencrest, which is in easement with LTV.
The Dencrest property conservation easement held by the Land Trust of Virginia protects 135 acres of scenic open space comprised of large pastures separated by tree lines. The property features significant agricultural soils (the entire farm) and water resources. Two small ponds exist that are considered to be NWI Wetlands. The property is currently being used for equestrian activities and pasture and plays a critical role in the sport of foxhunting, providing open space for riders and bordering two of the most historic foxhunts in the United States. The property is highly visible from Atoka Road, which is a designated scenic Byway. The property is totally surrounded by other properties in conservation easement, making it now part of one of our country’s most densely conserved areas.
