The Cape May Bird Observatory will present a particularly interesting exhibit for the first show of the new year in their on-site Sluice Creek Gallery. Called “A View from the Cape ,” the show will feature a variety of juried photographs depicting the natural beauty of the Cape May area. The exhibit,which runs for 6 weeks, will open Friday January 21st with a reception from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

“Cape May hosts some of the most beautiful wildlife and landscapes on earth,” observed Don Freiday, photographer and CMBO Director of Birding Programs. “It is truly a ‘target rich environment’ for outdoor photographers.”

A total of 25 works from the the following photographers will be featured: CariAnne Slotterback, Karl Lukens, Kevin Karlson, Mike Hannisian, Nancy Watson, Scott Whittle, Tony Leukering, Will Kerling and Don Freiday.
All work in the show is by volunteers or staff from CMBO, a non-profit conservation organization. Photos will be for sale, and a portion of the profits will be donated to CMBO. In addition the wildlife gallery will offer a folk art component comprised of work done by a number of professional New Jersey carvers.

Light refreshments will be served at the opening reception on Friday, January 21st from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m.

The public is cordially invited to attend. CMBO is located at 600 Route 47 [near mile marker15.8], just north of Goshen, N.J. Sluice Creek Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9:30 to 4:30. For more information please contact exhibit designer/coordinator Susan Zipper at (609) 861-0700 ext. 38.
