Looking Closely Exhibit by Gretchen Halpert

Gretchen Halpert is intrigued by connections, and how one structure attaches to, or influences, another. Smilax herbacea (front) is the result of walking into her backyard and becoming fascinated with its twisting vines, attachments, and tendrils, unfolding buds, and developing flowers and fruits. She followed this plant’s development from May to October, sketching, researching, learning, and bringing portions into the studio to draw from life. That which captures our interest lures us to further examination. With this exhibit, she invites you to look closely.

Gretchen Halpert was educated in botany (Connecticut College), scientific illustration (RISD/CE) and trained in medical research. Her work appears in books and journals, and she has been featured in various publications, including Scientific American. Halpert received a solo exhibition by invitation at National Taiwan University; a visiting artist and educator position through the National Science Museum and NSTDA in Thailand; and has been awarded artist grants through NYSFA. She is the past president of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and founding director of the Scientific Illustration Distance Program.

Rivers to the Sea – 2021 Members Themed Art Exhibition

2021 GNSI-NE 3rd annual themed exhibit

Rivers to the Sea

Come and join GNSI-New England as we celebrate the long-awaited public installation of Rivers to the Sea, our 2020-2021 themed art exhibition that was only viewable online last year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Our theme for this exhibit is New England watersheds which contain a vast array of ecological systems. Each of these ecological systems supports a wide variety of biodiversity from the upland headwaters all the way to their termination into the sea. All of this biodiversity relies on the precious resource of water flowing past, on a constant journey from the land to the rivers to the sea. We invite the members of GNSI-NE to celebrate this biodiversity in their chosen media, to help bring awareness to the fragile communities which rely on these watersheds all through New England. Their overall health, and ultimately our own, relies on healthy watershed systems.

Our Mission – Art, Education, and Science

Our annual themed exhibit is instrumental in bringing our mission of combining art, education, and science out into the public. Increasing public awareness completes the circle, by using our art to teach our viewers something that applies right here in their daily lives. We invite you to explore the artwork in the exhibit and learn about the vast biodiversity that relies on healthy watersheds.

Our exhibit will be on public display at the RISCA Atrium Gallery located at One Capitol Hill, Providence, RI 02908 from Monday, September 20, 2021 through Tuesday, February 23, 2022. The gallery space is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Click this link for more information about the Atrium Gallery.

Rivers to the Sea – 2020 Online Exhibit Opening

This year has brought some unprecedented challenges for everyone, and this year’s exhibit was impacted such that we cannot install it at Bartholomew’s Cobble as we originally intended. Hopefully, we will be able to have an in-person exhibit next year and everyone can get together to enjoy this beautiful collection of illustrations. The online exhibit opening will slowly be revealed as entries will be posted a few at a time over the month of September, hopefully with all of them being posted by the end of September. Please come check out the beautiful illustrations and share the link for the website with your friends and family.

2020 Newport Flower Show NESBA and GNSI-NE Art Exhibit

Due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) precautions,
this event has been cancelled for 2020.

2020 Newport Flower Show Art Exhibit

Joint art exhibit with NESBA and GNSI-NE

The New England Society of Botanical Artists and GNSI-NE are once again teaming up for the art exhibit to take place at the 2020 Newport Flower Show which takes place at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island from Friday, June 19, 2020, through Sunday, June 21, 2020. The theme for this year’s show is Voices in the Garden and should provide plenty of inspiration for everyone to exercise their creativity in the celebration of gardens, gardeners and green thumbs.

Voices are like fingerprints. Each has a unique register and leaves an indelible signature. A garden is the reflection of the gardener’s voice. Whether that voice echoes the strength in mighty trees, the romance of fragrant flowers, or the laughter of bubbling water, all are still heard in great gardens. Celebrate the voices of great American gardeners at the Newport Flower Show!

Flower Show Dates and Times

    • Friday, June 19, 2020 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
    • Saturday, June 20, 2020  9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
    • Sunday, June 21 2020 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

I want to participate, sign me up!!!!

We will hopefully be taking part in the 2021 Newport Flower Show next year. Check back in with us next spring.

Into the Woods Opening Reception | 2019 Themed Art Exhibition

Come and join GNSI-New England as we celebrate the Into the Woods opening reception of our 2019 themed art exhibition. This exhibit focuses on the ecological importance of our woodlands, including trees, and other flora, fauna, and fungi, as well as ecosystem processes and conservation. Several GNSI-NE members will be conducting various technique demonstrations during the opening. Drinks and refreshments will be available.

Our annual themed exhibit is instrumental in bringing our mission of combining art, education and science out into the public. Increasing public awareness completes the circle, by using our art to teach our viewers something that applies right here in their daily lives. We invite you to come meet the artists, explore the artwork they have created and learn there’s more to our local woodlands than just trees.

Into the Woods | 2019 GNSI Members Themed Art Exhibition

Into the Woods 2019 GNSI Members Themed Art Exhibition

If you’re in the Belmont, MA area, stop by Mass Audubon Habitat to see the latest art show by the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators – NE Chapter. The theme of this educational exhibit is “Into the Woods” and depicts the ecological importance of woodlands, including trees and other flora, fauna, and fungi, as well as ecosystem processes and conservation. I guarantee you will not only enjoy the artwork of our members but also learn something important about our environment!

For example, did you know…..

Redwood forests are crucial in providing a healthy, stable climate. Studies show that redwoods capture more carbon dioxide (CO2) from our cars, trucks and power plants than any other tree on Earth. Through the process of photosynthesis, redwood trees transform carbon dioxide – the leading cause of accelerating climate change — into the oxygen we breathe. When redwoods are cut down, burned or degraded by human actions, they release much of their stored carbon back into the atmosphere and they can no longer transform CO2 into the oxygen we breathe. This is a double-whammy for the growing imbalance in the world’s carbon cycle and the climate’s stability.

The exhibit will be on display from October 1st through Oct 29th and the venue includes many beautiful hiking trails. Bring a picnic lunch and make a day of it as the Habitat property is beautiful!

Important dates and hours

  • The exhibit will be up from Tuesday, October 1, 2019 through Tuesday, October 29, 2019.
  • The exhibit opening reception and artist demonstrations is on Wednesday, October 9, 2019, from 6-8 PM.
  • Mass Audubon Habitat hours of operation are as follows: Monday to Friday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 am-4:00 pm; Trails open daily, from dawn to dusk.
  • The exhibit takedown date is Wednesday, October 30, 2019.
