What do branches, pine cones, roosters, multicolored frogs, perky perched birds, plunging feeding birds and intricate insects have in common? These natural objects have been transformed into art by students of Art Collabortions.
D&R Greenway Land Trust presents Nature’s Potpourri, an exhibit of multi-media works by Heather Barros’ Art Collaborations! students in D&R Greenway’s Olivia Rainbow Gallery at the Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, Princeton, on view through January 13, 2017. Gallery hours Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 609-924-4646; www.drgreenway.org
The artwork conveys the impact of a walk through a pinewood, near a healthy lake, on a breezy day—just what you’d find while walking on any of D&R Greenway’s preserves.
Barros, Founding Curator of the Olivia Rainbow Gallery, brings nature subjects to her students, ages 4-18, helping them engage with the natural world through hands-on experiences.
D&R Greenway’s Olivia Rainbow Gallery was founded by Chris and Leslie Kuenne in memory of their daughter Olivia, a budding artist for whom nature, especially rainbows, was a passion.
