D&R Greenway Land Trust Presents The Juried Exhibition "Lovely as a Tree"

(PRINCETON, NJ) -- D&R Greenway Land Trust’s juried exhibition, Lovely as a Tree, includes the work of more than 80 artists responding to the words of poet Joyce Kilmer: “I think that I shall never see  a poem lovely as a tree.” The artwork is on view November 19, 2018 through January 25, 2019 at D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center, 1 Preservation Place, Princeton. 

Standing sentry to watch over the Garden State, the trees of New Jersey benefit the environment and the creatures that inhabit it. From the state tree, the Northern red oak, to the memorial tree, the flowering dogwood, this exhibit celebrates their contribution to cleaner air, higher water quality, and a healthier, happier community.

Since 1989, D&R Greenway Land Trust has been preserving New Jersey land, ensuring bountiful local crops and protected streams. Through its increasing success in preservation and stewardship, remarkable New Jersey landscapes remain, sustaining native species and inspiring regional artists.

"This is more of an immersive visual forest than an exhibition,” says D&R Greenway Curator Diana Moore. “Surrounded by many expressions of trees in many different mediums, one feels both the individual talent of the selected artists and the collective impact of a shared passion for the trees that punctuate our landscape."

Exhibiting artists include Jim Amon, Kathleen Amon, Danielle Austen, Hana Aviv, Laura Beard, Kristen Birdsey, Aida Birritteri, Gail Bracegirdle, Linda Bradshaw, Deb Brockway, Lonna Buinis, Jean Burdick, Peter Burt, Glenn Cantor, Larry Chestnut, Fred Gardner, Christopher DeGrezia, Connie Dierks, Wayne Domkowski, Sean Edwards, Renee Egan, Daniel Gluibizzi, Catherine Gowen, Dee Gozonsky, Donna Gratkowski, Ann Hoffenberg, Susan Hogan, Mary Hrbacek, Eve Ingalls, William Jersey, Joe Kazimierczyk, Armor Keller, Catherine Kuzma ,Deborah Land, Mary A Leck, Robert C Lowe, Byron Lum, Frank Magalhaes, Barbara March, Dominic Martelli, Helene Mazur, Joyce McAfee, William McCarroll, Lucretia McGuff-Silverman, Karen McLean, Helen Meyers, Arlene Milgram, Florence M.

“The mission of our Marie L. Matthews Art Gallery,” says Linda Mead, D&R Greenway President and CEO, “is to create reflection about the value of the natural world and inspiration to protect it.”  She continues, “I am excited for visitors to experience what can only be imagined as a ‘virtual forest bathing’ adventure. Breathe deep, and come on in!”

There will be an opening reception on Friday, November 30 from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Please phone (609) 924-4646 or rsvp@drgreenway.org to register for reception. Gallery hours Monday-Friday,10:00am to 5:00pm. Call to be sure galleries not rented at time of exhibition.

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.
