Precipitation as an art form

March 20, 2013 by  

The Mass Audubon Society’s Moose Hill Wildlife Gallery is currently running the illustrious ‘Snow and Ice’ exhibit.

The New England winters are characterized by elements that profoundly affect our day-to-day lives. However, from an artistic point of view, these multifaceted features evoke resplendent and compelling observations, perhaps giving some ideas to local print company workers.

Seven of New England’s most prolific artists magnificently depict the exhilaration and tranquility of these inherent, dichotomous elements. Among the artists featured are Richard Antinarelli, Diana Barker Price, Fred Martins, Rebecca Skinner, Gary Tucker, Ralph Bevivino, and Sheila Palley, who compile an exceptional collection of stunning pieces. Visitors can experience the drama of nature through their dazzling and inspiring illuminations of New England’s wintertime elements.

The exhibit is open for public viewing every day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm through March 26. The Moose Hill Sanctuary is situated about 24 miles from Seekonk in Sharon. For further details, visit the website or please call 781-784-5691.
