The Weeks Art Gallery at Baltimore Woods Nature Center is pleased to present Natural Selections, an exhibit of watercolor paintings by Bob Ripley. On exhibit from September 5th through October 28th, 2011 in the Weeks Art Gallery, 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus, NY, this collection of work in transparent watercolor is open to the public during business hours: Monday through Friday 9am-4pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, September 10, from 2-4pm. The gallery and the reception are open to the public. There is no admission charge, and parking is free.

The natural world informs Ripley’s work as a wildlife artist. Painting in the realist tradition of the masters Winslow Homer and Andrew Wyeth, Ripley’s work demonstrates a level of understanding known only by those in direct contact with the wild ones.

Ripley is an avid outdoorsman and spends many hours fly fishing, canoeing, hiking and cross-country skiing. “Encounters with nature through my numerous outdoor hobbies provide a wide array of creative opportunities,” says Ripley. “Wildlife and natural forms have served as inspiration for my artwork ever since I was a young boy painting watercolors on cardboard shirt boxes. .. A painting’s composition is very important to me, and working in fine detail allows me to get into the animal or fish’s skin, so to speak.” he continues.

Ripley sums up his dual interest in art and nature: “There is a classic, and often spectacular beauty to be found in the natural world. Through my art, I am able to immerse myself in that wild aesthetic.”

Bob Ripley is a native of upstate NY and was born and raised in Elmira. He is a Navy veteran and an honors graduate of the School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University. After a successful career as an art director in advertising, he is now retired and able to fully pursue his passion for wildlife art. He resides in the country near Skaneateles, NY.

Please visit: www.baltimorewoods.org, and www.bobripley.com for more information on this talented, “natural” artist.

Baltimore Woods Nature Center is located at 4007 Bishop Hill Road, Marcellus, NY 13108
Hours: Interpretive Center is open M-F 9am-4pm, Saturday 10am-4pm, closed Sundays.
The hiking trails and parking are free and open every day from dawn to dusk.

Baltimore Woods Nature in the City brings authentic natural science learning to K-6 grade urban school children. Supported by the Syracuse City School District and corporate sponsors, tied to the Syracuse City School District curriculum and New York State Science Standards, lesson content supports teachers while directly impacting students. Holding programs in parks and neighborhood green spaces as well as the classroom, students’ earliest learning experiences in the sciences are relevant, meaningful and fun.
