This past Thursday evening saw the opening of In the Audubon Tradition in Cincinnati. This exhibition honors the 200th anniversary of John Audubon's connection to the founding of The Museum of Natural History and Science in that Ohio city and shows work from 80 plus artists known for their outstanding depictions of the natural world and the animals that inhabit it. I'm pleased to have three of my works included.

It's an honor that three of my works will be included in the upcoming celebration of the 200th anniversary of the opening of Cincinnati's Museum of Natural History and Science, now housed in the beautiful, recently renovated former Cincinnati Union Station in which the Cincinnati Museum Center now resides. This exhibition also honors the legacy of John James Audubon, who was the museum's first employee in 1820. Works by dozens and dozens of the country's most notable animal artists will be on display and available for purchase beginning September 12th and running through early January of next year. The exhibition has been put together by the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation and I'll post a link to the show's web site once it is fully on line, shortly.

With this year's opening of the Woodson Art Museum's eagerly anticipated yearly exhibition, Birds in Art just around the corner (second weekend in September), I am honored to have been asked to introduce this year's honoree for Master Wildlife Artist and present Alan Woollett with his medal. I've known Alan's work for many years, both his graphite black and white work as well as his colored pencil output, and am excited to share his joy in this honor. I have several of Alan's works in my personal collection and am anxious to see them hanging in the galleries at the Woodson Museum along with the others that have been lent for this exhibition. If you can make it to the public opening on Saturday, September 7th in Wausau, you'll get to meet Alan and see his wonderful work in person and hear me talk about what it is about Alan's work that is so appealing to me.

I'll be offering two workshops this summer, one on the west coast and the other along the eastern seaboard, in June. The Oregon workshop will be a three-day event and the Richmond area one will be a two-day weekend offering with a Friday evening reception at the location of the workshop. I've noted the dates for both and you can contact both venues for further information.

A bit less than a month from now, I'll be headed to Charleston, SC for this year's edition of the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. I'll have 15 newly completed works with me and hope to see you in that lovely, historic city for "The Expo". Check out their web site for more information - https://sewe.com/ - and plan your visit.

My turkeys are about to hit the road. 'Twas There I Spent My Callow Youth will be joining 59 other works from this year's Birds in Art exhibition at the Woodson Art Museum as they head out on a tour across the country once the exhibit closes in Wausau this weekend. First stop, Brookgreen Gardens on January 25th, then on to Marshall, Texas and the Michelson Museum of Art (opening April 27th next year) and finally to the Newington-Cropsey-Foundation along the Hudson River next September 20. In the meantime, have a yummy-filled Thanksgiving.
