I’ve just returned from a whirlwind of a voyage. This adventure didn’t involve travel, but rather searching throughout the world virtually, fact checking for the Birds in Art catalogue.
Take a link-clicking trip to experience just a fraction of my discoveries about the 2021 Birds in Art artists.
Sara Wolman was featured as this year’s World Migratory Bird Day artist with Environment for the Americas.

Jeremy Bradshaw, Carel P. Brest van Kempen, Jamie Cassaboon, Gerald Painter, Aleta Rossie-Steward, and Sherrie York, exhibited in Animal Impressions at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in Tucson.
Kris Parins and Lorraine Watry were both finalists in the Women in Watercolor International Competition.
Andrew Haslen’s painting, Oranges and Pears, includes a Hoopoe, a goofy looking bird I had never heard of before. To create this work, Haslen revisited old sketchbooks from a trip to Portugal and he graciously takes us all along via his artwork.

Two artists, Steven Spazuk and Federico Uribe, who work using the most unusual techniques and mediums – fumage and bullet and shotgun shells – are represented by Adelson Galleries in New York City and Palm Beach, Florida.
In Germany, Diana Höhlig, Eugen Kisselmann, and Harro Maass, all exhibited artwork in Moderne Vogelbilder at Museum Heineanum.
