From Frame to Field Continues

Posted on Dec 8, 2015

While things turn brown and become a little quieter outdoors be sure to spend a bit of time indoors with us. Come visit the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History in Jamestown, New York to see the artwork of Michael DiGiorgio in our new 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. He has also traveled throughout the United States recording American birds. He won the first ever endowment award from the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia for recognition of his Bird Illustration work. This award was given in memory of Don Eckelberry. Come see extraordinary works like this one as soon as you can!
