Woodlands and Wildlands Art Exhibit

Spencertown Academy Arts Center presents “Woodlands and Wetlands” art exhibition featuring artists Jacqueline Altman, James Coe, George Dirolf, Ellen Jouret-Epstein, Roger McKee, and Burdette Parks. On Saturday, May 26, there will be a festive opening reception from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and the show will remain on display through June 17. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Admission is free and the artworks are for sale; a portion of the proceeds benefits the Academy.

On June 3 at 2:00pm, Columbia Land Conservancy Stewardship and Education Manager Heidi Bock will give an illustrated talk titled “Woodland Pools: Important Habitats or Just Big Puddles?”; following the presentation and time to view the art exhibit, participants will have the option to join Bock at Harris Conservation Area in nearby Austerlitz, NY, where she will lead a nature walk to see the regional woodland and various wetlands. The nature hike isn’t too strenuous, but comfortable shoes are recommended as it is on wooded trails. Admission to both the talk and walk are free. Advance reservations are encouraged; please email art@spencertownacademy.org.
