"In the Eyes of the Beholder: The Connection Between Art, Nature, and Community"
Join us on Thursday, September 20th from 5 - 7 PM at the Angela Koenig Center to say farewell to this well-received exhibit of the various areas in and around Oyster Bay.
On view from June to October 2018, the Oyster Bay Historical Society’s new exhibition, “In the Eyes of the Beholder: The Connection Between Art, Nature, and Community", is the fruition of a collaborative partnership between the Society and Adelphi University’s Bridges to Adelphi program. The paintings, drawings, and photographs on display were created by this talented group of students inspired through their own interpretations of the natural sites within the Town of Oyster Bay. The exhibition will also feature special selections from the archives to complement the artwork, merging together both the past and present alternate views on how nature is perceived and viewed through many eyes.
About Bridges to Adelphi
Bridges to Adelphi, located on Adelphi University’s campus in Garden City, NY, enables students who are on the autism spectrum or have nonverbal learning disabilities make a smooth transition to university and postgraduate life. The program offers individual and group academic, social, and vocational support services.
The Diary of Mary Cooper 1768 - 73
Account Books of Marmaduke Earle
Private Journal of Charles Wightman.
Personal documents play an important role in how historians learn about the past. Through personal accounts such as diaries, account books, and correspondence, we gain greater insight into the day-to-day lives of ordinary people. In Read between the Lines, we utilize specific first-hand documents written by three housekeepers who once lived in Oyster Bay. The exhibition presents primary texts from Mary Cooper’s late-colonial diary (1768-1773), Marmaduke Earle’s school-house account books (1802-1844), and Charles Wightman’s private journal (1883-1884).
