H. Wayne Trimm Art Exhibit/Opening at the Georgi

April 28 at 7 PM, the Georgi on the Battenkill Community Park and Museum will be hosting an Art Opening in the Community Room. Artist and Illustrator, H. Wayne Trimm, will be presenting “Nature’s Wonders”, exhibiting his paintings and illustrations. Wayne was the feature artist and art director for the NYS Conservationist Magazine for 30 years and lived in Chatham in the1950s. At age 93,he is the last living founding member of the Alan Devoe Bird Club.

The subjects of his paintings are based in nature: wildlife and flowers. Wayne and his wife, Melodee, are both wildlife biologists and rehabilitators. In later years, he hosted “Outdoor World of Learning” (O.W.L.) programs, and would bring rescued owls to schools and other places to teach people about nature and birds. Wayne would demonstrate his always fit condition by holding his big Great Horned Owl on his left arm and sketch the bird’s portrait in pastel, all the while talking with the audience about “Bramble’s” features.
