Marsh Madness: Wonders of Wetlands
Dec. 28-May 4 2014
Donations requested: $3, $10/family.
Through May 4. Wed-Fri 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m., Sat-Sun 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m. In an array of work created by members of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators (GNSI), Marsh Madness: Wonders of Wetlands demonstrates the principal task of the science illustrator—to create accurate renderings of scientific subjects. In this exhibit, nearly forty scientific illustrations of birds, turtles, plants and other natural subjects found among the freshwater wetlands of Upstate New York and the Adirondacks are depicted in both traditional and digital formats. These illustrations precisely show proportions, coloration and anatomy of a subject. They communicate complex descriptive information in an aesthetically appealing way and aid the viewer by providing intricate detail. In addition to the artwork, a variety of taxidermy wildlife will be on display.
