Jim Nutting, owner of Maine Art Glass in Lisbon Falls and an avid insect collector, will give a presentation, Wednesday, Sept 19, 4-5:00pm in the Storytime Room. Mr. Nutting has a vast personal collection and extensive knowledge of thousands of live and mounted insects. He has put together a world-class display of tropical and local butterflies and insects, all stunningly displayed in stained-glass display cases and handmade shadow boxes.
This collection, known as The Butterfly and Insect Museum at Maine Art Glass, is becoming well known throughout Maine and across the country, and is becoming a destination for school groups, summer camps, Scouts, youth and adult service organizations and families. He has been an exhibitor at BugMania at the Maine State Museum for some years, now, and is one of few individuals in Maine licensed by the Maine Inland Fish and Wildlife Department to keep and exhibit live tarantulas, scorpions and other exotic invertebrates. All are welcome!
