Take a drive this week and check out two art exhibitions that tackle subjects of arguably equal mystery and fascination: one that celebrates nature, and another that explores human nature. "Marsh Madness: Wonders of Wetlands" is on view at the Hurst Gallery at Rochester Museum and Science Center's Cumming Nature Center (6472 Gulick Road, Naples) through May 4. In addition to works by the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators that feature birds, turtles, plants, and other flora and fauna found in freshwater wetlands, a variety of taxidermy wildlife is on display. The gallery is open Wednesday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Admission to the center is a suggested donation of $3 per person or $10 per family. For more information, call 374-6160 or visit rmsc.org.
From January 11 through February 28, Main Street Arts (20 W. Main St., Clifton Springs) will present "Being Human," which addresses themes of relationships, power, culture, and emotion in works of a variety of media by established and emerging artists.

Clarke, Maria Galens, Richard Harvey, Francesca Lalanne, Tom Lightfoot, Robert Ernst Marx, Colleen McCall, Mitch Messina, Edward Mullady, Anne Muntges, Caitlin Pallischeck, Jose Enrique Portas, Mike Tarantelli, Wayne Williams, and Bill Wolff.
