The Sharon Historical Society located on 18 Main Street on the stately Sharon Green is hosting a new exhibition through October 28 called “Distaff in Sharon: A Tribute to Melva Bucksbaum”.
The exhibition at The Gallery @the SHS takes its inspiration from the ground breaking 2013 show curated by Ms. Bucksbaum at the Granary in Sharon titled “The Distaff Side, ” a diverse exhibition of paintings, sculpture, photography, and video by more than 100 female artists from the collections of Ms. Bucksbaum and her husband, Sharon resident Raymond Learsy.
The show at The Gallery @the SHS features work by local women artists Debra Bilow, Zelina Blagden, Tina Chandler, Karen LeSage, Ellen Moon, Catherine Noren, Sally Pettus and Kate Stiassni.
After visiting the show at the Sharon Historical Society, plan to stop in at the Sharon Audubon Center located on 325 Cornwall Rd. in Sharon. Here you can explore more than 3,000 acres of land that offers 11 miles of trails to explore. There is a small hands on natural history museum in the main Visitors Center and a Children’s adventure center as well as a store. You will also find Raptor aviaries, the herb garden and a beautiful bird and butterfly garden.
Each year the Sharon Audubon Center admits more than 300 birds, mammals and retiles to their wildlife rehabilitation program with the ultimate goal of caring for them and releasing them back into the wild.
