BREWSTER, MA — Naturescape Gallery at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is proud to present “Nature Circles” by artist and writer, Beth Adoette February 16 – April 30, 2019. *
Born in the Appalachian Mountains, Beth grew up with beech trees, hemlock, mountain streams and chickadees in her hand. Once an editorial illustrator, Beth now concentrates on writing, illustrating and photographing what she calls the “contemplative, sacred circles” she discovers or co-creates with nature. Nature Circles is a stunning exhibit exemplifying her relationship with the beauty of nature “that gently holds the physical and spiritual message of the moment.”
Beth also facilitates a variety of Eco-Art Wellness Workshops and classes to help people learn about themselves and their place in the world in a very powerful and intuitive way. She currently lives in southeastern New England and is nearing the completion of her certificate in Eco-Art Therapy.

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.
