An Abundance of Riches

On Exhbit July 1 - october 21, 2017

Explore the worlds of art and nature through Andrea Rich’s intricately designed, carved, and printed woodcuts. An internationally recognized artist, Rich has traveled worldwide to portray the beauty of birds and animals in their habitats through her work.

Using a centuries-old medium that requires a carved wood panel for each layer of color needed to develop the composition, Andrea Rich creates detailed prints. These panels are painstakingly aligned one atop another sequentially and pulled through a printing press to create the final piece. Read more about her work and Wendell Gilley's on our exhibits page.

A Flight of Swallows

Many thanks to all who supported the Museum at this year's wine tasting benefit.
Plan to join us next year on Thursday, August 2, 2018 at the Neighborhood House for another round of delicious wines and food pairings. Learn more about each wine through conversation with the pourers and The Field Guide to the Swallows created for this event. Bird carving demonstration, jazz music, and excellent conversation make for a fun and festive evening.

See our events page for upcoming talks and activities.
