Through the Eye of a Naturalist

Exhibit Reception: Sunday, August 18th from 2-4 p.m. Open to the Public

“There is nothing ugly; I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful.” (Memoirs of the Life of John Constable, 1843).

Master Naturalists have never seen an ugly thing in nature. The proof can be seen in their photography exhibit this summer at the Williamsburg Regional Library. Stirring the eyes of visitors with striking views of nature, this exhibit will run from July 22nd through August 31st and will grant the viewer a glimpse into a Naturalist’s inquiring mind.

Historic Rivers Chapter Virginia Master Naturalists take photographs while going about their business as community natural resource volunteers. Their photos reflect their never-abating interest in the natural world. They are people who are curious about nature and who want to capture and hold tight those brief moments when light, shade, and perspective enhance detail, color, and form.

The Chapter has over 100 active members who volunteer in the community as educators, citizen scientists, and stewards of natural resources—and today, as photographers.The statewide program is sponsored by Virginia Cooperative Extension, Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation, Virginia Department of Forestry, Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, and Virginia Museum of Natural History.
