Free Exhibit in June at Arcadia - Mass Audubon

Please stop by Arcadia Wildlife Nature Ctr. at 127 Combs Rd., Easthampton, and enjoy a FREE viewing of various paintings by Pat McDonagh. They will be on display in our exhibit room from June 1st  to June 30th.

Pat’s comments regarding her paintings are as follows:

I have always found that exploring the natural world offers limitless opportunities for learning

Botanical painting is a great way to engage with nature.  The play of light creates the objects we see and how to render that light with pigments and paper.

When I paint a flower, or a lichen-covered twig, or a mushroom I try to render it accurately in form and color, but I also hope to communicate something beyond that. I try to draw attention to details that are not always apparent to casual observation and to celebrate how these details define and constitute the wondrous co-inhabitants of our world.
