John MacRoy Gallery Reception

A sneak-preview of spring will be on display at the Olean Public Library during the month of March. Olean native John MacRoy, an artist and retired educator, will showcase his eclectic, extensive collection of beautiful butterflies, moths, and giant creepy-crawlies, a collection that he has displayed at hundreds of elementary schools throughout our region while presenting an entertaining and educational assembly program. This exhibit will display specimens from every continent on Earth ranging from the tropical equatorial forests to the artic tundra, and our own special temperate environment will also be featured. Witness world-wide cryptic, gigantic silk moths, the dazzling iridescent morphos from tropical America, the beautiful, majestic bird-wing butterflies from Papua New Guinea, and much, much more.
