Searching for Beauty in a Broken World, Art Exhibit (Opening Ceremony)

On display from January 10 - January 24. Described as visual metaphors, almost abstract, slightly surreal, these paintings explore the connection between brokenness and beauty. Brokenness allows, or forces, us to see and feel the benefits of our wild landscapes, our respite in the midst of chaos. These paintings highlight the natural beauty of the northern Alleghenies along with the worn facades of our built townscapes. In addition to studio work, Ryding is an adjunct professor at Pitt-Bradford and directs the local artists’ cooperative ArtWorks on the Summit in Kane, PA. Ryding has shown regionally and with the Encaustic Art Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. www.mrydingartworks.com/ ;

This exhibit is Free to attend. For more information visit www.upb.pitt.edu or call (814) 362-0248.

Bringing Nature Home, Pfeiffer Nature Center
We humans are always being told "you are what you eat." Simple enough, right? To be healthy you must eat healthy. The thing is humans have been able to create or manufacture foods which are super tasty but unfortunately not always good for us. Trying to find a healthy and happy balance can be a challenge, but the good news is that humans have lots and lots of choices as we have the ability to eat many different types of food. This is not the case for lots of other living beings on the planet. For many animals, finding nutritious foods which they are able to eat can sometimes be quite difficult. Entomologist and Wildlife Ecologist Doug Tallamy brilliantly discusses why this is a problem for all of nature in his book "Bringing Nature Home - How You Can Sustain Wildlife with Native Plants."

Pfeiffer Nature Center is hosting a book club style get together for those who have either read the book or are interested in the topic. This program is free and open to the public.

Register by Feb. 13th or at the time of the program. Sign-up on the web at www.pfeiffernaturecenter.org or contact their office at (716) 933-0187.
