Birds in Art 2015

September 12 – November 29, 2015

Birds, in all of their majesty and fragility, connect us with the natural world. Heralding each sunrise, these harbingers of seasonal and environmental change routinely elicit attention and admiration. When some of the world’s most talented artists look to birds for inspiration and strive to be among those chosen for the internationally renowned Birds in Art exhibition, the resulting artworks are stunning. The 40th annual exhibition, featuring artwork by 123 artists from throughout the world, celebrates avian splendors through fresh interpretations in original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years. This year’s 123 artists include 102 artists whose work was selected by a jury in May and 21 who have been named Master Artists during previous Birds in Art exhibitions. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies Birds in Art and will be available in September.
