Farms, Barns and Bridges

October 24 - December 16, 2016

A century ago, our landscape was dominated by farmland, with its rolling hills, patchwork grids of planted rows, silos, barns and covered bridges. Our memories of the rural landscape are often preserved by artists who convey these scenes. Since 1989, D&R Greenway Land Trust has been preserving New Jersey farmland to ensure bountiful local crops, healthy water and scenic vistas.

Earth/Fire

November 15, 2015 - January 22, 2016

From fiery sunsets to abstract expressions of burning embers and sizzling heat, artwork in this exhibit inspires a conservation ethic. Fire celebrates the passion we feel in our souls for preserving the earth. Without land on which to grow food, produce clean water and air, and connect to the core of ourselves, we do not have life. It is this passion that fuels the work of D&R Greenway Land Trust.

Urban Landscapes

December 5, 2012 - February 15, 2013

This exhibition evokes the contemporary relationship between the urban and the natural, where constellations compete with city lights and cement cloverleafs are more common than wildflowers.

Exhibiting artists:
Susan Marie Brundage, Jean Childs Buzgo, Chris Kline, Thom Lynch, Leon Rainbow, Linnea W. Rhodes, Louis Russomanno and Tricia Zimic, along with select works by the TASK (Trenton Area Soup Kitchen) A-Team artists.
