From Field to Frame Continues

Posted on Jan 22, 2016

Come visit the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History in Jamestown, New York this weekend to see the artwork of Michael DiGiorgio in our continuing exhibition, From Field to Framefeaturing original bird paintings by the artist. On the advice of his friend and mentor, the late Don Eckelberry, DiGiorgio has been painting and sketching birds from life since early in his career. He has traveled to the British Isles, West Indies and South America to sketch and paint tropical bird and plant life.
