Family Matinee: E.T.
Nov 23 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

After a gentle alien becomes stranded on Earth, it is discovered and befriended by a young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). Bringing the extraterrestrial into his suburban California house, Elliott introduces E.T., as the alien is dubbed, to his brother and his little sister, Gertie (Drew Barrymore), and the children decide to keep its existence a secret. Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.

Featured artists are: Douglas Allen, a painter of wildlife and landscapes whose work has been represented in the collections of several museums and galleries; James Fiorentino, a renowned watercolor artist known for detail realism in paintings of wildlife and some of the world’s most famous faces; Leslie Delgyer, a wildlife artist whose work focuses on endangered animals, shedding light on their plight and disappearing habitats; Linda Rossin, who specializes in traditional miniatures featuring wildlife and nature, and Beatrice Bork who is an animal artist known for her detailed compositions in watercolor and gouache, and signature style backgrounds.  Originals and prints from each artist will be available for show and sale in the Hunterdon Art Museum’s beautiful 19th century stone mill, and each artist has generously donated an original piece to be auctioned.

This special event includes hand-picked bourbon and a selection of wine presented by Chris Beardsley, Manager of Bourbon Street Wine and Spirits. Todd Becker of Lone Eagle Brewing, Flemington NJ will provide craft beer. Music will be provided by The Raccoon Ridge Ramblers, a New Jersey cover band that plays an eclectic mix of tunes by a wide range of artists.  Meet the artists, listen to music, and enjoy delicious food.

Woodlands Wildlife Refuge has been caring for and releasing thousands of orphaned and injured native wild animals for 33 years. Woodlands cares for more than 1300 animals a year including raccoons, skunks, opossums, woodchucks, rabbits, coyotes, foxes, river otters, beavers, turtles, snakes and porcupines, among others. It is the only facility in New Jersey licensed to care for the state’s endangered bobcat and Timber rattlesnake and the primary rehabilitation facility for black bears.

Woodpeckers Of New Jersey
Jan 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Ages: 8 through adult

Woodpeckers have a variety of adaptations that make them great at pecking wood!  They have a tongue that is so long that they must store it behind their skull when it is not in use.  They have spongy tissue in their skull to absorb shock.  Their feet have two toes pointed backwards to help them grip vertically on trees.  Through the use of a PowerPoint and our taxidermied collection of the seven New Jersey woodpeckers, we will learn all about these unique birds.  Pre-registration required.
