D&R Greenway Land Trust Hosts "Delaware Dreams: Return to the River" Art Exhibit

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Marie L. Matthews Galleries celebrate our founding river with “Delaware Dreams: Return to the River” art exhibition through November 9.  Place-based artists include Anne Abo-Harb, Bob Barish, Kate Graves, Erica Harney and Frank Sauer. Small animals of the Delaware Valley will ‘attend’ the reception, provided by the Center for Aquatic Sciences. D&R Greenway is a member of the Alliance for Watershed Education (AWE).  

Curator Diana Moore has gathered a multi-media extravaganza honoring the Delaware River and its historic, multi-productive valley. Rarities feature Kate Grave’s provocative sculptures of legendary sturgeon and Frank Sauer’s close-up portraits of fig buttercups and wood anemones. The Robert Wood Johnson Gallery walls are studded with Bob Barish’s evocations of Delwaware River and Canal bridges from the 1800s to the 21st-Century.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm: Call to be sure galleries not rented at time of prospective visit. D&R Greenway:  One Preservation Place, Princeton NJ, off Rosedale Road www.drgreenway.org.

An artists’ reception will be held on Friday, September 14 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.  Reception is free, but please call (609) 924-4646 or rsvp@drgreenway.org to register.

D&R Greenway Land Trust was founded in 1989 to preserve land near the D&R (Delaware and Raritan) Canal in Mercer County. Its preservation and stewardship now stretches through seven New Jersey counties. Central to our mission and our state is our founding river, amplified in this exhibition.  The Delaware is the longest un-dammed river in the United States east of the Mississippi, extending 330 miles from the confluence of its East and West branches at Hancock, N.Y. to the mouth of the Delaware Bay where it meets the Atlantic. There could well be signs along the Delaware’s New Jersey and Pennsylvania shores, “The ocean begins here.”

D&R Greenway Land Trust is in its 29th year of preserving and protecting natural lands, farmlands and open spaces throughout central and southern New Jersey. Through continuous preservation and stewardship -- caring for land and easements to ensure they remain protected and ecologically healthy in perpetuity -- D&R Greenway nurtures a healthier and more diverse environment for people and wild species in seven counties. Accredited by the national Land Trust Accreditation Commission, D&R Greenway’s mission is to preserve and care for land and inspire a conservation ethic, now and for the future. Since its founding in 1989, D&R Greenway has permanently preserved more than 20,000 acres, an area 20 times the size of New York City’s Central Park, including 30 miles of trails open to the public. The Johnson Education Center, a circa 1900 restored barn at One Preservation Place, Princeton, is D&R Greenway’s home. Through programs, art exhibits and related lectures, D&R Greenway inspires greater public commitment to safeguarding land.
