The Importance of
Biodiversity in the Urban Forest
Joy Cirigliano of 4 Harbors Audubon Society
Saturday, July 16
This lecture will be free and open to the public.
Gallery North is pleased to present Inside/Out, celebrating the artwork that has emerged from Gallery North programs including The 2022 Wet Paint Festival and workshops at The Studio at Gallery North. As a complement to the exhibition, Joy Cirigliano of 4 Harbors Audubon Society will present The Importance of Biodiversity in the Urban Forest on Saturday, July 16 at 6 pm. The exhibition, reception and lecture will be free and open to the public. The Wet Paint Festival and workshops at The Studio at Gallery North both serve as creative catalysts for artists, encouraging experimentation, and engaging with and supporting an inclusive, multigenerational artist community. These programs take place both inside our Studio space as well as at locations in our broader community, and they often reflect the impact of the ecological, historical and cultural composition of our region on our local artists. Whether the subject of the composition or the natural materials used in its creation, nature plays a role in many of the works in Inside/Out. In conjunction with this theme and its importance to the exhibition, Joy Cirigliano of 4 Harbors Audubon Society will discuss the biodiversity of our region.
Inside/Out includes artists, Marceil Kazickas, Nancy Bueti-Randall along with over 50 local and regional plein air artists who participated in the 18th annual Wet Paint Festival at Sherwood Jayne Farm. Artists representing the studio programs include John Benevento, Andrea Baatz and more than 20 other local artists working in a wide range of techniques and media, such as shibori dyed textiles, encaustic and intaglio prints.
This exhibition is generously sponsored by Jefferson’s Ferry, bld Architecture, and Suffolk County’s Department of Economic Development and Planning. The exhibition, reception and lecture will be free and open to the public.
