Georgia On My Mind Exhibit and Chattahoochee Nature Center Happenings
Georgia Nature Photographers Association (GNPA) and the Chattahoochee Nature Center (CNC) have partnered together on the current photography gallery at the Nature Center. Coinciding with the reopening of the CNC boardwalk on the Chattahoochee River, the theme of the gallery is “Georgia on My Mind”. The gallery celebrates the beauty of nature that can be found in Georgia. The 24 macro, wildlife and landscape photos capture the beauty and diversity of Georgia’s natural environment. Visit the CNC and view the gallery in the Discovery Center and while you are take a stroll out to the new CNC boardwalk along the river and made even more accessible with the pedestrian bridge.
The CNC will hold their 23rd annual Flying Colors Butterfly Festival on June 4-5. During that time there will be butterfly releases, pollinator experts to answer your questions, and the Butterfly Encounter in which you can photograph these winged wonders. The Butterfly Encounter will remain open for several weeks so you can visit during different hours of the day.
It is also time to start to prepare for the 7th annual partnership exhibition between Georgia Nature Photographers Association (GNPA) and the Roswell Fine Arts Association (RFAA) at the Chattahoochee Nature Center. This event is to be included as part of the fall Atlanta Celebrates Photography event and the theme is titled Double Vision. Twenty-four (24) images will be selected in the contest to be exhibited in the CNC River Resource Gallery in Roswell, Georgia. These same images will be interpreted by artists from the RFAA. When brought to the CNC for hanging, the photographic image and the artist’s interpretation will be hung side-by-side…thus the theme name Double Vision. Additional information on Double Vision coming soon.
The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a private, non-profit environmental education facility in Roswell, Georgia. The Chattahoochee Nature Center has as its mission to connect people with nature. It does this by focusing on educational outreach through the use of live flora and fauna. The Chattahoochee Nature Center also conducts educational programs and activities to inform its visitors about the natural environment.
Georgia Nature Photographers support CNC’s mission by donating photographs of activities at a few specific events at the Chattahoochee Nature Center when requested by them. This provides volunteer photographers a controlled environment with a specific shot list for each occasion to photograph guests
