Many of artists featured in “Made in NY 2023,” which opens March 25 at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, have been inspired by nature. For some, the goal is to capture the beauty around them. Other artists use their creations to warn of humans’ abuse of nature. A total of 320 artists submitted 480 entries for this year’s “Made in NY” exhibition. Jurors Gary Sczerbaniewicz, Theda Sandiford, and Kevin Larmon selected 81 pieces from 79 artists for the show.

The free opening reception will be 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 25.

Prize winners will be announced at 6 p.m.
