The Science of Water with Dr. Sweeney
Wednesday, May 12th, 2010
6:30PM - 8PM
At Audubon Greenwich

A special presentation about one of our most precious natural resources—fresh water. Dr. Bernard Sweeney from the Stroud Water Research Center will discuss the science of freshwater research, including how our streams and rivers function as a whole and the complex web of life that inhabits them. Only through knowing how healthy streams and rivers work, and what happens when they become polluted, can we determine how to protect and preserve this vital resource. Participants will leave with a fresh perspective on how to protect, preserve, and restore watersheds everywhere, including our local area.

$5 suggested donation accepted at the door.
RSVPs not required but are appreciated.
Contact Jeff at (203) 869-5272 x239

His current research interests are: The role of water quality monitoring in conservation, population and community ecology of temperate and tropical aquatic invertebrates, pollution assessment in temperate and tropical streams using macroinvertebrates, the role of streamside forests in the structure and function of stream and river ecosystems, factors affecting the growth and survivorship of trees in riparian forests, the effects of global warming on stream ecosystems, genetic variation and gene flow among populations of stream insects, the effects of diet and seasonal temperature change on aquatic insect populations, evolution of facultative parthenogenesis in aquatic insects, bioenergetics and secondary production of aquatic insects, and the bioassay of toxic materials in aquatic systems.

STAMFORD, CT. — The Loft Artists Gallery presents Big-Bigger-Biggest, an art show featuring select large paintings from LAA artists. All art on exhibit will be 36” X 48” or larger, offering a rare opportunity for viewers to see how LAA artists are experimenting with size and scale.

“The idea of a show where the only parameter is size is intriguing as is the chance to view a selection of very large paintings in one space,” says Mark Macrides. “It will be much different than what viewers typically expect to see in our gallery.”

Big-Bigger-Biggest will run from May 7th to June 20th, with an opening reception that is free and open to the public on Friday, May 7th from 6PM. to 9PM. The Loft Artists Gallery is located at 845 Canal Street in Stamford, CT. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 12-5PM. Admission is free.
