OLD FORGE — With the trees bare and snow covering the ground, View, the center for arts and culture, invites everyone to come inside and bathe in the vibrance of their new exhibitions “Flowers, Trees, & Roots: The Wild World of Plants”; “The Art and Science of Botanical Illustration”; “Precaria: Disturbance and Dislocation”; and “Winter Greens & Blooms.”

These shows open with a reception on Friday, Dec. 9, from 5-7 p.m. The reception is free to the public, and will include complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. All exhibitions will run through March 25.

• “Flowers, Trees, & Roots: The Wild World of Plants” will immerse viewers with the voluptuous bounty and beauty of plant life, interpreted by over 60 artists working in all media, including painting, printmaking, clay, photography, fiber, and drawing.

• “The Art & Science of Botanical Illustration” shows the intersection of art and science, with artists exploring the botanical world in stunning detail through scientifically accurate depictions of plant life.

• “Precaria: Disturbance and Dislocation” is a solo exhibition of sculptural works by Jack Elliott. By repurposing fallen and found trees, Elliott celebrates their scale and strength as he lays bare the precarious and migratory nature of our forests due to the stresses of disease, invasives, and our changing climate.

• “Winter Greens & Blooms” will cover the View lobby in a vibrant display of lush, live plants, artist-made pottery, and photographs of stunning Adirondack plant life collected through a community photo contest. All plants and pottery will be available for purchase. The exhibition is made possible through creative partnerships with Mountain Greenery, View’s Independent Potters, and all those who submitted photos.

Additional botanical programming will be running throughout the exhibitions including art and ecological lectures, workshops, and movies. Go online to ViewArts.org for the full winter schedule of events.

View is located at 3273 Route 28.
