Hurst Gallery

January 29 - November 15

Just about everyone has gazed out over the waters of the Finger Lakes, but what is life like under the surface? This exhibition of science illustrations from members of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators Finger Lakes Chapter will illuminate some of the mysteries beneath the Finger Lakes’ surface. These illustrations shine a light upon a selection of the 50 species of fish, thousands of invertebrates, and numerous plants that inhabit them - as well as interactions between the flora and fauna above and below the surface. With maximum depths that range from 40 to 618 feet, the Finger Lakes may have had common geological origins, yet today each has unique ecological attributes and life. Come learn about the secrets of the great murky depths!

Artist merchandise from the exhibit will be available for purchase at the Welcome Desk.
