Take the family to Quiet Waters Park Visitor Center for an interactive Nature Exhibit that brings the outside indoors and is engaging for all ages.
Park rangers and friends of Quiet Waters Park assembled the exhibit along with donations from environmental organizations. It will run from April 2 to May 18. Kids can check out the mounted stuffed animals, the reading tent, an interactive touch table and a scavenger hunt with binoculars taking them throughout the exhibit to find things.
The works of Annapolis artist Charles Lawrance will also be on display. Lawrance has a unique style of nature based paintings in oil and acrylic and some more contemporary themed works which include surreal settings with figures and wildlife interacting on the canvas. An avid fisherman and professional painter, Lawrance has blended the two arts to create fish prints from those he catches, a Japanese fish printing technique called gyotaku. Lawrance is an outdoorsman and draws inspiration from his time spent in nature, which is the subject of many of his paintings.
The Visitor Center hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., weekdays and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., weekends. The center is closed on Tuesdays. Quiet Waters Park charges a daily vehicle fee of $6.
A meet the artist reception will be held April 6, from 4 – 7 p.m. with light fare and live music. The admission fee will be waived when mentioned at the entrance gate.
