Earth Day occurs on April 22 this year. This show pays homage to the earth and to our natural resources through the eyes of our artists.
Artists traditionally love and care for the earth, and its beauty. Today, their role is far more critical. They are recording, for posterity, the grandeur of our natural world as our legacy. as those who deny climate change and science blindly plow a path of destruction and devastation.
Come celebrate the wonders of this world with our artists. Purchase their works for your children and grandchildren. This is their legacy to either store as a memory, or to work to preserve. "It's Not Easy Being Green"

A Wayzgoose is an old English printers’ celebration, traditionally on St. Bartholomew’s Day (the 24th of August). By the arrival of Bartlemas each waning summer, printers in England needed to light lamps and candles to beef up the sunlight to set type for their projects and a good printshop proprietor would bring in not just the lamps and candles, but also some good food and strong ale to boot. Was there goose involved? Maybe. All we know is this annual printers’ celebration became known eventually as a Wayzgoose.
This big autumnal party is celebrating 5 years since Jaffe Center for Book Arts opened it's hand papermaking studios and 10 years since opening their print shop and bindery, the Autumn Wayzgoose at our paper studios will feature a big tent, live music, a good old fashioned apple sale, print and paper making demos, and the Harves.t Makers Marketplace, featuring the wares of local artisans and small creative companies.
Historic T6 is located on FAU's Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College.
