The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Eye on Nature: Five Natural Science Illustrators, an exhibition in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery at 70 Audubon St., 2nd floor. The exhibition will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday October 12th to December 7th, 2012. A public reception is scheduled for Thursday, November 8th, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Eye on Nature is an exhibition of botanical studies, drawings, and paintings of amphibians, mammals, birds, and insects in their habitats in graphite, colored pencil, ink, watercolor, gouache, and oils.
These works were specifically chosen by the members of the Connecticut Natural Science Illustrators (CTNSI) to accurately depict specific species, rendered in the traditional media and techniques of natural science illustration.
The artists exhibiting work will be: Cindy Gilbane, Susannah Graedel, Linda Miller, Dorie Petrochko, and Jan Prentice.
Founded in 2009, CTNSI is a group of professional artists offering an educational art program in natural science illustration, in collaboration with the Yale Peabody Museum at its west campus in Orange, CT.
CTNSI regularly shows their work in museums, galleries, and nature centers in the Greater New York area, furthering their mission to “educate the public about the field of natural science illustration.” In addition to exhibiting their works, CTNSI offers classes of all levels in drawing and painting natural history subjects and habitats.
