Birds in Art
July 15 – August 27, 2017


Tranquility, Kathryn Ashcroft, 2016

Long venerated for embodying freedom, grace, and beauty in flight, birds continually provide creative inspiration to exceed limits of earthbound human existence.  As we aspire to sing, soar, and preen like them adorned in brilliant attire, avian art inspires in endless ways.  When talented artists from throughout the world strive to be among those chosen for the internationally renowned Birds in Art exhibition, the resulting depictions are breathtaking.  The 41st annual exhibition celebrates avian marvels through fresh interpretations in original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years by 112 artists from throughout the world.  This year’s exhibition includes 2016 Master Artist Karen Bondarchuck, twenty who were named Master Artists during previous Birds in Art exhibitions, and ninety-one artists whose work was selected by a three-person jury.


March Madness & the Soprano, Walter Matia, 2016
