Gallery Exhibits

Recognized by the arts community and residents as an important regional resource and venue for the arts, the center’s four gallery spaces host rotating exhibits from local and regional artists. Themed exhibits reflect the area’s natural environment, as well as local to global science and social issues. Larger gallery spaces are utilized for group exhibits in partnership with local arts organizations. Our Community Hall Gallery offers space to highlight local artists and school projects.

and running through October 28th: TRIBUTE: the Life and Work of Earl C. Stocker. Join us in celebrating the artwork of well-loved Easton artist, Earl C. Stocker, who among many other endeavors, partnered with Nurture Nature Center on their “Perspectives: Art on Environment” project for many years. Easton lost this great spirit when he passed away last year. This exhibit offers a look into a lifelong series of sketches, drawings and paintings of the kind-hearted man known to many as “Mr. Easton.” Free and open to all.

2021 Gallery Exhibits:

This collection represents a small sampling of winged miracles (both bird and insect) that inhabit the Delaware River watershed for a few months each year. Some are well-known, like the monarch butterfly, but others may escape notice. Whether summer breeders, winter visitors, or just passing through on their way elsewhere, these species’ life cycles include movement over varying distances, from a few 100 km in some cases (e.g., the wood duck) to 1000s of km in others (e.g., the red knot). Throughout these migrations, they remain closely connected with particular habitats, from shorelines to grasslands, forest, wetlands, and agricultural land. Stewardship and preservation of these habitats and their inhabitants is vital, if we are to continue to live in a world “graced by the curving wing of a bird in flight,” as Rachel Carson wrote in Silent Spring.
