By ARTIST TALK AT D&R: Liz Cutler will be at D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Johnson Education Center for an artist talk and dessert reception on Thursday, January 18 starting at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited to an artist talk and dessert reception on Thursday, January 18 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at D&R Greenway Land Trust’s Johnson Education Center, One Preservation Place. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled to Thursday, January 25.  Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by artist Liz Cutler’s presentation at 7 p.m. 

Retired Princeton Day School teacher Cutler, who led the school’s sustainability club to inspire students to observe and care for nature, is showing her botanical art in memory of her son, Isaac. Together, they walked Greenway Meadows park throughout his lifetime.

Cutler, a self-taught artist, turned to the meditative art of collecting and pressing flowers into unique artistic expressions during his illness. She follows the Flower Pressers Ethos to ensure that anything she collects will do no harm to the species or environment.

There is no charge to attend; reservations are required at info@drgreenway.org or (609) 924-4646.  Guests are encouraged to take time to enjoy desserts, hot chocolate, and cider and the works of other award-winning exhibiting artists including accomplished quilting artist Deb Brockway; syndicated cartoon artist, author, and playwright, Patrick McDonnell; and internationally acclaimed watercolorist James Fiorentino.

Art sales will benefit the land trust’s work to preserve and care for land, maintain public trails, and inspire a conservation ethic.
