D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Marie L. Matthews Galleries celebrate our founding river with “Delaware Dreams: Return to the River” art exhibition through November 9. Place-based artists include Sara Anne Abo-Harb, Bob Barish, Kate Graves, Erica Harney and Frank Sauer. Small animals of the Delaware Valley will ‘attend’ the reception, provided by the Center for Aquatic Sciences. D&R Greenway is a member of the Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE).
Curator Diana Moore has gathered a multi-media extravaganza honoring the Delaware River and its historic, multi-productive valley. Rarities feature Kate Grave’s provocative sculptures of legendary sturgeon and Frank Sauer’s close-up portraits of fig buttercups and wood anemones. The Robert Wood Johnson Gallery walls are studded with Bob Barish’s evocations of Delwaware River and Canal bridges from the 1800s to the 21st-Century.
Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm: Call to be sure galleries not rented at time of prospective visit. D&R Greenway: One Preservation Place, Princeton NJ, off Rosedale Road www.drgreenway.org.
