"Glimpses of the Natural World"
with Photographer Susan Jarek-Glidden
November 1 ~ December 30, 2018.
Glimpses of the Natural World attempts to showcase the beauty of Cape Cod. In addition to flora and fauna, Susan has also included weather conditions, several abstracts and “pho-quilts”, a photographic genre Susan created that consists of her original photographs cut into shapes. Viewed up close, the individual photos can be seen; from a distance, they combine to form a quilt pattern. She hopes that the latter will engage your imagination.
Susan holds a Ph.D. from Boston University and has been interested in photography since she was a little girl. Since that time, her work has been shown in galleries and various other venues in New Hampshire, Marblehead, Boston, the U.S.S. Constitution Museum, and throughout Cape Cod. She was also chosen by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority to hold a solo artist show entitled "A Photographer's View of Deer Island". She lives in Yarmouthport with her husband Tony and their beloved seal point Siamese cat, Maluska Anastasia.
And, on Wednesday, October 31st, aka Halloween, at 12:30pm Susan will be giving a Lunch ‘n Learn presentation on the “Vampires of New England.”
Museum hours: November/December - Wednesday ~ Sunday 11am – 3pm

Long Term Exhibitors:
CCMNH is proud to present the work of artist, author and naturalist, James Prosek. His book Ocean Fishes, is a colleciton of 35 Atlantic fishes, all of which were painted life size based on individual specimens he traveled to see, a journey that started right here on Cape Cod. Naturescape Gallery is exhibiting two of his life-sized Fine Art prints; a Swordfish and a Blue Fin Tuna. His work has been shown in numerous esteemed galleries.
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is proud to present nature illustratror, Barbara Harmon. Her work is created through a combination of traditional art and digital work in Photoshop or Illustrator. The work comes from her solid foundation in traditional “board art” (watercolor, gouache, airbrush, pen and ink, scratchboard, colored pencil, oil, acrylic). A Master’s degree in Medical Illustration (University of Illinois at Chicago) and a Bachelor’s degree in both Zoology and Fine Art (University of California, Berkeley) have provided her with the basics of the academic and technical tools she applies in creating her vivid images.
Barbara’s latest mural can be seen in the Main Hall depicting the four habitats around the Museum; the upland forest, fresh water wetlands, marsh, and the beach.
Barbara won both the People's Choice (Ralph Sweet) Award with the Association of Medical Illustrators', and Best in Show with the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators in 2010.
