The South Shore Natural Science Center is pleased to announce the exhibit “Heart of the Matter” by Hanover artist Karen Cass.  The show opens Tuesday, November 20 and runs through January 6, 2019.  The Opening Reception will be Friday, November 23 from 5-7 p.m. in the Vine Hall Gallery.

Karen currently teaches art for grades K-4 at Cedar Elementary School in Hanover. She is the owner of Karma Studio, her home art-space where she conducts private art lessons and workshops. Karen has served as an Artist in Residence at the South Shore Art Center and is active in her community as Chair of the Hanover Cultural Council.

Her recent paintings express her concern for the environment through her use of the abstracted landscape, heavily layered organic forms and networks. The artist draws the viewer into her imaginary world of color and pattern to evoke a sense of place and whisper a message of caution to appreciate and preserve our precious natural resources.

About the South Shore Natural Science Center:

The South Shore Natural Science Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the natural and cultural environments of the South Shore. Their mission is to “provide natural science experiences that educate, excite, and commit every generation to preserve the environment and to encourage responsible use, stewardship and enjoyment of our natural resources.”  The South Shore Natural Science Center is located on 30 acres in Norwell, MA, surrounded by 200 acres of town conservation/recreation land consisting of meadows, woodland, and a pond. The Science Center is also home to the EcoZone – an interactive museum featuring live native animals, owl and turtle exhibits, a Children’s Garden, and 6 interpretive nature trails. 

The South Shore Natural Science Center was started in 1962 by a group of like-minded individuals, with the goal of providing nature programs to the youth of the South Shore.  In 2011, the Science Center merged with the South Shore YMCA, enabling it to reach and serve a wider audience.

Today, the Science Center offers a wide variety of nature-based programs for children and adults, a summer Day Camp, the Nature Center Preschool, an art gallery, and the EcoZone museum, created with the assistance of noted wildlife biologist Jeff Corwin.
