The South Shore Natural Science Center announces the exhibit “Nocturne” by Plymouth artist Kat LiBretto.  The show opens October 8 and runs through November 17, 2019.  The Opening Reception will be Friday, October 11 from 6-8 p.m. in the Vine Hall Gallery.  A workshop will be held on October 26 from 12:30-2pm that will enable participants to try out some of the techniques that are used to create the prints in the exhibit.

 

Inky Hands is a contemporary silk screen studio, gallery, and publisher in Plymouth, MA, dedicated fully to silk screen as a fine art process.  The studio provides a collaborative approach to producing limited edition screen prints with artists, as well as offering the community a place to learn and print through workshops and short courses.  Master Printer Kat LiBretto has been printing since 2007, opened Inky Hands in Dallas, TX in 2014 and relocated to Plymouth in 2018.  

 

The Mono-Print Workshop on October 26 will give participants an opportunity to learn the basic process of silk screen and try their hand at printing as well as free-hand work. 

 

The Vine Hall Gallery is a multi-use space that provides a place for local artists to share their artwork depicting the natural world (please call ahead for viewing availability).  Programs and exhibits in Vine Hall are partially funded through a Cultural Investment Portfolio Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

About the South Shore Natural Science Center:

The South Shore Natural Science Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the natural and cultural environments of the South Shore. Their mission is to “provide natural science experiences that educate, excite, and commit every generation to preserve the environment and to encourage responsible use, stewardship and enjoyment of our natural resources.”  The South Shore Natural Science Center is located on 30 acres in Norwell, MA, surrounded by 200 acres of town conservation/recreation land consisting of meadows, woodland, and a pond. The Science Center is also home to the EcoZone – an interactive museum featuring live native animals, owl and turtle exhibits, a Children’s Garden, and 6 interpretive nature trails. 

The South Shore Natural Science Center was started in 1962 by a group of like-minded individuals, led by Norwell’s Cap’n Bill Vinal (often referred to as the father of nature education), with the goal of providing nature programs to the youth of the South Shore.  In 2011, the Science Center merged with the South Shore YMCA, enabling it to reach and serve a wider audience.

Today, the Science Center offers a wide variety of nature-based programs for children and adults, a summer Day Camp, the Nature Center Preschool, an art gallery, and the EcoZone museum, created with the assistance of noted wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin.
