California condors, by Richard Sloan.

The Cottonwood Gallery is a home for environmental art located within the Southwest Environmental Center. It is more a component of our conservation work than a conventional art gallery. Featuring a lofty ceiling and natural lighting courtesy of skylights, Cottonwood provides a place for artists to engage and challenge people to reflect on humanity's place in nature and the need to adopt a more generous, sharing and respectful attitude towards the other millions of life forms with which we share the planet.

If you are an artist and would like to show your work at the Cottonwood Gallery, contact us at
