QUECHEE — The Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) is proud to present Maine watercolor artist Michael Boardman and his art exhibition featuring wildlife and wild lands. Boardman specializes in field sketching and watercolor painting. Boardman’s works are currently on display at the VINS Nature Center through July 4.
Boardman states, “Painting becomes a record of my experience outdoors; light, color and shapes combine to bring the spirit and essence of place to my work.” Boardman was selected as the Visiting Artist for Baxter State Park in 1920. He remarks, “I found myself drawn to the stories written in stone that the mountains of Baxter tell.”
During Boardman’s art show at VINS, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of his artwork will go to VINS to support its mission of environmental education, research and avian wildlife rehabilitation.
Admission is $14.50 for adults, $13.50 for seniors, 62 and over, $12.50 for youth, ages 4 to 17, and free for members and for children, 3 and under. For info, visit vinsweb.org.
