The Chestnuts are a nonprofit alliance of landscape painters and friends dedicated to the conservation of wild and open spaces in Middle Tennessee. Funds earned from the sale of artwork, inspired by the region’s scenic richness, will be donated to the Friends of Warner Parks to help protect the local environment and its historic properties.
