ALBANY — The Artesian Alliance Art Show opens this week at Thronateeska Heritage Center. The exhibit features the creative work of staff members from Artesian Alliance organizations, including Chehaw Park & Zoo, the Flint RiverQuarium, and Thronateeska Heritage Center.
The works exhibited in the show feature paintings, photography, blown glass and plant art.
A members-only reception for members of the Artesian Alliance kicks off the show Thursday from 5-7 p.m. The show opens to the public on Friday and will be open for a month during Thronateeska’s regular hours of operation, which are Thursday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. There is no charge for this show.
Visitors are asked to check in at the Science Museum before viewing the exhibit, which is located in the south gallery of the History Museum at the historic train depot.
