Paintbrush Forest is a community of 30 artists from the Orange County, NC area exploring the meaning of nature.

A community….

Paintbrush Forest is a community of artists. Some are professionally working artists, some are individuals beginning a new path into art making, and some are art students exploring visual arts as a continuing part of their creative life journey. What we all have in common is a passion for art making.

…of artists…

Paintbrush Forest is a community of artists. Our work shows diversity of style and medium.

…exploring the meaning of nature.

We all share a desire to use our unique talents to promote a higher awareness for natural things and places, and support a local environmental cause. Proceeds from “Tree” benefit the Haw River Assembly, an organization based in Pittsboro, NC, which works to restore and protect our local watershed and water source for the whole community.
