CHATHAM — When you think about nature, what do you picture? How do you feel? How do you relate to the natural world?

Local artist David McIntyre invites you to consider your relationship to nature at his new outdoor exhibit, Step into Stillness, on display at Greenport Conservation Area from June 21 through late August. To view the exhibit, follow the Blue Access for All Trail from the parking lot for approximately one third of a mile.

“The work represents three views; how we see nature, how nature sees us, and finally, located where it is, the real thing! So it’s both something to see and a place to see from,” says David.

“We were thrilled to work with David on this project,” says Heidi Bock, CLC’s Conservation Education Manager. “CLC is committed to providing a variety of opportunities to connect with the land, and enjoying thought-provoking art is a great way to spend time outside.”

If you visit the exhibit, CLC would love to see your photos! You can post them to the Greenport Conservation Area Facebook page or on Instagram using -clctrust.

Step into Stillness by David McIntyre was made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered in Columbia County by the Greene County Council on the Arts dba CREATE Council for Resources to Enrich the Arts, Technology & Education.
