First Friday Art Night

First Friday Art Night - Lucy Gagliardo

May 3, 2019 | 5 - 8 pm
Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop

Visit the Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop on First Friday Art Night, May 3, 2019, to see the new exhibit of works on paper by nature artist Lucy Gagliardo. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours.

Lucy will be holding a workshop during Art Night demonstrating the printing techniques she used to create some of the artwork in the current exhibit. Visitors will have the opportunity to create artwork for printing, try direct printing of plant materials, and experiment with creating cyanotypes.

Lucy Gagliardo loves natural science and scientific illustration, combining the two working as a research technician and a freelance illustrator. She is a member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and is an active member of the local chapter. Lucy feels drawing is a great tool for learning, and continues to learn as she creates art. She always hops that those viewing her art learn something new about the world around them. At this show, Lucy will be showing some of her cyanotypes, block prints, direct prints, and color pencil works.

Light refreshments will be served. Admission to the show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, special evening admission rates apply to Museum exhibits and the workshop. The artwork will be on display through the end of May.

While you are there, take the opportunity to enjoy an evening at the Museum of the Earth. We have extended evening hours—the Museum will be open until 8 pm! Admission to the Museum on Friday Art Nights (from 5 to 8 pm) is only $5.00.
