“ICE IS NICE”: This photograph by David O. Anderson is featured in “Emergence,” on view through Feb. 3 at the Olivia Rainbow Gallery at the D&R Greenway Land Trust, One Preservation Place. The exhibition presents a collection of art photographs of nature seen from the point of view of children.

D&R Greenway Land Trust invites the public to experience nature with new eyes, inspired by its new art exhibition, “Emergence.”David O. Anderson, past president of the Princeton Photography Club and longtime member of the Land Trust’s Conservation Photographers, exhibits a new collection of fine art photography of nature seen from a children’s perspective.

The Olivia Rainbow Gallery, named in memory of 5-year-old Olivia Kuenne, has been transformed into an awe-inspiring experience, with exploratory words and images that evoke emergence, which is defined as “the process of appearing after a long absence .” Through Anderson’s lens, visitors of all ages will experience the “wonderful attention” children bring to the natural world.The land trust joins Anderson in hoping, in his own words, that the time spent in this unique exhibit brings everyone to “the emergence from adulthood into childhood”.

Says the artist of his creative process, “As I reviewed this 2020 D&R Greenway Land Trust application for nature images from a child’s perspective, I was inundated with childhood memories of family picnics in parks and nature preserves, visits to zoos and natural history museums, and outdoor camping trips with the Boy Scouts. a child’s point of view rather than an adult’s.

Anderson’s Natural Finds can be viewed Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., through February 3. All photographs are for sale, with a percentage supporting D&R Greenway’s mission of preservation and land stewardship in central Jersey and along the Delaware Bay.

Both can be visited Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The show has been extended through January 7 at D&R Greenway’s Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place, off Rosedale Road.
