The gallery is free and open to the public. It will run from July 1 through Aug. 5. The Santa Fe gallery, located at 3000 NW 83 St. in Gainesville, will be open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm Special weekend hours will be held on July 23 and 24, coinciding with Zookeeper Day at the SF Teaching Zoo.

Earlier this year, the teaching zoo celebrated another five years of accreditation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The zoo is the only teaching zoo to receive this professional accreditation.

In addition to the Natural Beauty exhibit, the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo is also partnering with Pinspiration Gainesville for a Paint Party at the Zoo. Artists as young as 13 years old can register for the guided painting event and create their own art pieces.

The event will take place on July 10 at 10 am at the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo. There will be a registration fee of $25 for zoo admission.
