Join us to celebrate the latest exhibition in the Gilsland Farm Gallery, Growing at Your Feet: Paintings by John Knight
On view January 8 - February 12, 2019

Reception: January 26, 1-3pm

 

From The Forecaster:
"Knight said he began painting plants as “a way to connect to my surroundings. Gilsland Farm is a close place to walk that has a variety of plant and bird life. The same fields and trails change color and texture as the seasons change, so there are always new views to record.”

What he also appreciates is that “wild plants have uses as food and medicine that we are constantly relearning. Knight also said that focusing on a plant or flower is a way to focus the eye in a bigger landscape."

Join Maine Audubon in preparing to celebrate National Bird Feeding month in February!

Transform your backyard into a bird sanctuary with the help of The Nature Store.

Offering food and water nurtures birds through the harsh winter, and allows us the chance to observe them up close. This is also an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to the natural world right outside our windows. Join us for tips on how!

We will be offering informal talks throughout the day.

Staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
