This past weekend, I was in the midwest for the opening festivities of this year's Birds in Art exhibition at the Woodson in Wausau, Wisconsin. The weather was nice and fall-like and the atmosphere conducive to art talk! About 60 of 100 exhibiting artists were on hand from all around the globe. A fine time was had by all. Following are some images shot over the three days of the event, showing some of the 115 works of art, some of the artists and some of the museum! Enjoy.
This year's Master Wildlife Artist was Californian, Andrea Rich. Her beautiful, colorful woodblock prints were featured in the entry gallery and these are just three of the dozen or so works she showed.
Artist friend, Melanie Fain, struck a pose for me as we wandered the galleries, drinking in the fine, fine works.
This work, one of a number of pieces that headed my short list of favorites, is by Zimbabwe born artist, David Langmead. I just could not get over the sharpness and sparkle of the sunlight dancing across his canvas.
