Through 2D and 3D art, interpretive panels, and guest speakers, this exhibition will highlight the lifecycle and ecological importance of horseshoe crabs in the web of life and explore how human exploitation is threatening these sentient creatures once so abundant. 

The exhibition will feature works in a variety of media including fine art, photography, printmaking, glass, ceramics, textiles, sculpture, jewelry, etc. Artists are encouraged to submit works that explore the beauty of these ancient creatures, their ecological importance, and the threats they face. The exhibition will feature approximately 30 works and include a section highlighting works by children. 

Curiosity – 2024 Members Themed Art Exhibition

2024 GNSI-NE 5th annual themed exhibit

Curiosity: Illustrating the Wonders of Nature & Science

Natural science illustrators have a common goal: communicating the wonders of nature and science to inform and educate scientists, researchers, students, health care professionals, and the public. The illustrating process creates wonder and engagement with the subject matter using elegant “cutaways” or cross-sections, transparent or “see-through” views, and explanatory smaller images or insets to emphasize areas of focus. The artwork in this exhibition will be created to help audiences understand and appreciate the wonders of the natural and scientific world – sparking curiosity, increasing understanding, heightening appreciation, and prompting further exploration.

Our exhibit will be on public display from March 30, 2024, through June 1, 2024, at the Great Ponds Gallery located in the Lakeville Public Library.
