Those planning “staycations” this summer, but wishing they had more adventurous plans on tap can easily be transported to other worlds by visiting this summer’s art exhibits at Homer Babbidge Library.
On view are photos of such environs as Dingle Harbor in Ireland, Kerala in India, and Times Square courtesy of members of the Connecticut Valley Camera Club (CVCC) in their “Photography: a Passion” exhibit. Started in 2002, the CVCC is an active group that boasts 45 members with backgrounds as diverse as the photographs they create. From architect, to molecular biologist, to flight attendant, to landscape architect, they are united in their passion for capturing sights that speak to them. This show represents the work of 11 members.
Scientific illustrator Virge Kask treats those visiting her “Art in Science” exhibit to a visual feast found in the natural world. From Alaska to the Chesapeake Bay to the Central American rainforest, she has drawn inspiration for interactive critical habitat posters. UConn’s resident science illustrator, Kask shows the wide range of work she’s done over past 30 years for journals, children’s books, educational posters, and museum exhibits.
A public reception will take place on Thursday, September 10 from 4-6 p.m.
The exhibits run through October 19.
