    Our newest art installation reveals life in the pond at all sizes - amoebas to largemouth bass! Created by Chris Longwell, Lecturer of Art and Art History & Director of the George Waters Gallery at Elmira College.


    Longwell is a local artist and art educator, who has exhibited his ceramics nationally at venues such as the Society for Contemporary Craft (Pittsburgh, PA). This project combines his love of art, nature and community. Longwell will give a presentation on how the ceramic mural was designed, created, and installed.


    This artwork was funded by a 2015 "Artist Crossroads" Grant from the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.

    "Jumbo Wild" is an hour-long documentary that plunges viewers into the breath-taking wilderness of the Purcell Mountains in British Columbia. Part of an important wildlife corridor, the Jumbo Valley is one of only two areas in North America where grizzly bears can freely roam between Canada and the U.S. But there's more to Jumbo than just the beautiful glaciers.


    For decades, First Nations, conservationists, backcountry skiiers and snowboarders have fought a proposed large-scale ski resort deep in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia. After 24 years of opposition, what more will it take to keep Jumbo wild for good? 


    Tanglewood will screen the film in our Nature Center. Doors open for seating and concessions at 7:00pm, film begins at 7:15. Brief discussion to follow the film. 


    Free admission; popcorn and wine available for purchase.
