Pine Bush Perspectives

— Photos fro, the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center

“Each photograph reveals incredible features of this rare ecosystem, from macro to micro, from flora and fauna to landscapes, from color to black and white,” said Jackie Citriniti, lead educator and show designer.

On Dec. 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center will host the unveiling of its sixth juried photo exhibit, celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve.

“The photo exhibit is an amazing display of local talent. Out of hundreds of submissions, it is a daunting task to choose the finalists … ,” said Jackie Citriniti, lead educator and show designer, in a release from the center. “This is a great opportunity to not only view breathtaking art up close and personal but experience this globally rare, nationally significant, and locally distinct preserve.”

The exhibit will be open to the public through the end of February 2020 and is sponsored by the Friends of the Pine Bush Community.

“We hope the images exhibited will inspire others to go afield with their camera and experience something new,” said Friends’ president Richard Naylor in the release.

Juror-selected awards will be presented during the opening and light snacks will be provided.

Visitors of all ages are welcome. This free special event will be held rain or shine at the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center at 195 New Karner Road. 

Reservations are not required for special events, but knowing how many people are coming helps with planning, so please sign up. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Sign up by calling 518-456-0655 or visit
