SONSI Travelling Members’ Exhibit 2016 at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area

The Southern Ontario Nature and Science Illustrators’ Travelling Members’ Exhibit is moving to its second venue, the Ball’s Falls Conservation Area, on January 16th and will exhibit there until February 28th, 2016.

This is SONSI’s fifth annual members’ exhibit since the group formed in 2010, and was originally displayed at the Giant’s Rib Discovery Centre at Dundas Valley Conservation Area in Hamilton, in Fall 2015.

For the first time, SONSI has chosen a theme for the exhibit: The Natural and Cultural History of Southern Ontario, with subject matter ranging from historical reconstruction to native plants and animals. The theme allows SONSI members to showcase their dedication to illustrating the natural environment of our region and their commitment to sharing this dedication with a larger community of art and nature lovers.

The Ball’s Falls Conservation Area is beautiful in all seasons of the year, winter being no exception. Getting out to experience the delights of the winter season can give you a much-needed physical and mental boost. And when you come in to warm up, you can view inspiring nature and science themed art and illustrations by members of SONSI.

Exhibit hours are 9am-4pm daily.
