MILFORD — The ARTery Gallery will host the Delaware Highlands Conservancy from April 19 to May 7, their first-ever joint exhibition.

It will feature photographs of eagles generated by the Conservancy and bird-themed artwork created by ARTery member artists.

In February, the Conservancy held its first annual photography contest, "Sharing Place: Eagles and Their Environs." The contest invited photographers to capture striking eagle inspired photos of the Upper Delaware River region focusing on these raptors, their habitat, and factors important to eagle welfare. The 15 winners will be exhibited at the gallery.

The April exhibition will be a bird lover's delight. In addition to the Conservancy photos, the co-operative gallery artists will display their own interpretations of raptors, song birds, and various other avian species that capture their imagination. These include paintings, photos, prints and birds or habitat in other media.

A reception, open to the public, will be held Saturday, April 21, from 5 to 8 p.m. to unveil the winners of the contest. Conservancy staff will be on hand to talk about their eagle programming and land protection work; as will the photographers who participated.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy works with landowners and communities to protect the natural heritage and quality of life of the Upper Delaware River region. To learn more, visit their website at DelawareHighlands.org.

The ARTery Gallery is located at 210 Broad St. ini Milford. For more information call 570-409-1234.
