FOR THE BIRDS
APRIL 22- MAY 31
Artists reception First Friday,
May 6, 5 - 8 p.m.
Birds fascinate us, enchant us, connect us to the natural world, remind us of our responsibility to the environment, and call us to action. In our exhibition, For the Birds three artists interpret birds as subjects in very different ways.
Jhenna Quinn Lewis brings life to canvas with oil paint, exquisitely articulating small birds in juxtaposition with unexpected objects and backgrounds. In this show, Jhenna combines Asian influences with some of her favorite birds.
Barbara Orsow’s fascination with birds in nature led her to use her camera to capture the mystery of their movement and her delight in the beauty of their details.
Claire Duncan paints the power and grace of large birds in acrylic. Her paintings have a contemporary feel and attempt to deal with her own underlying artistic ideas: light and dark, the nature of color, the relationship of the artist to the world.
