All A-Flutter With
Butterflies At Fort
To celebrate the monarch butterfly migration, "All A-Flutter," an exhibition of stunning color photographs of Long Island and rain forest butterflies in their natural habitat, comes to studio 6 Gallery in Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area, from August 25 through September 22.
Fort Tilden is alive with butterflies in August and September. A seaside urban national park, it is the perfect setting to observe the beauty of these special creatures in photographs and in the field. "All A-Flutter" is presented in partnership with Gateway National Recreation Area.
The opening reception to "All A-Flutter," where you can meet the artists, is on Sunday, August 25, 1 to 3 p.m. The work of Rockaway Artists Alliance nature photographers Holly Gordon, Laura M. Eppig and Kathleen Hervey will be displayed.
Gordon and Hervey travel the world to capture the artistry of nature. Eppig sticks closer to home. All three individuals produce extraordinary images, which can be seen on-line at www.hollygordonphotographer.com.
The gallery is free and open Saturday, 12 to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m.
Also, through arrangements by the Rockaway Artists Alliance (RAA), Gordon, Eppig and Hervey will present a slide show/lecture and a photography exhibition at the New York Hall of Science (NYHS) September 4 at 2 p.m. in the auditorium. These will accompany NYHS's month of "Bugged Out Science Weekends" events.
The color images seen in both the slide show and the exhibition are of butterflies seen in their natural environments. The slide show will reveal such fascinating stories as, the magic moment a Blue Morpho butterfly was captured photographically sitting on a colleague's finger.
The exhibition runs from Saturday, September 7 through Sunday, September 22 in the Technology Gallery. The New York Hall of Science is located in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens.
