Manomet and The Helen Bumpus Gallery Examine Global Conservation

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Please join us at the Duxbury Free Library for “New Approaches to Solving Conservation Problems on a Really Big Scale,” a presentation by Manomet Shorebird Recovery Project Director Charles Duncan.

Prior to the presentation, the Helen Bumpus Gallery is pleased to extend a special invitation to all attendees to view David Grossman’s photography exhibit “South Shore and Beyond.” The Helen Bumpus Gallery is housed within the Duxbury Library.

Here's the agenda:

Every year since 1980 the Board of Directors has presented the Conant Award, which gives special recognition to one of the artists whose works were shown in the gallery during the year.

This award was established by a donation from Esther Conant to honor her friend, Helen Bumpus.

A special exhibit was organized in June 2005 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of these awards. All recipients were invited to exhibit their work, and the diversity of styles represented in the exhibit was indicative of the range of artistic expression the Gallery has presented to enrich the community since 1968.

Congratulations to our 2011 Conant Award Receipiant Christina B. Wilson!
