From the gallery:
…a group exhibition of art in all media by various artists who use bird imagery as implied or symbolic references including those featured in the book The Birding Life: A Passion for Birds at Home and Afield; Clarkson Potter Publishers. Evocative and powerful, the marvelous beauty of the bird has long inspired artists to honor them in their artwork. Such bird-themed art and décor informs the homes and working spaces of the birders, artists, collectors, and conservationists alike. This exhibition features such inspired work in all medium from ceramic sculpture and pottery, paintings, prints and photographs.
