First Day of Art Exhibit: Biodiversity in Photographs by Sean Beckett
Thursday, October 6
This gallery exhibit is an ode to the incredible biodiversity present in our shared landscapes. Each photo represents not only an encounter with a stunning animal or wild place, but an experience that may move audiences toward environmental understanding and responsibility. A first step in mitigating widespread biodiversity collapse is for us to meet the elusive and charismatic neighbors with whom we share the woods. The photography features wildlife from Sean’s two ecological home bases — Vermont and Wyoming — though most of the featured species occur in both regions.
This art show will be on exhibit from October 6 to November 1 in the Thelma Babbitt Room, and is available to view during regular business hours. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will benefit the Harris Center. There will be an opportunity to speak with photographer Sean Beckett at the October 6 book launch of Our Better Nature: Hopeful Excursions in Saving Biodiversity.
Artist Bio: Sean Beckett grew up with a camera in hand. Trained by his mother, Sean learned at an early age that a camera can deliver the essence of our planet’s most powerful experiences. He is the Program Director at North Branch Nature Center, where he works to connect people with wild places and faces of central Vermont and beyond.
