Know me for longer than two minutes and you’ll quickly learn that I once lived along the front range of the Rocky Mountains. The three years I spent in Colorado were some of the best of my life.

From My Space to Yours, an exhibition featuring studio photographs provided by sixty-two Birds in Art 2020 artists, can be viewed online. Included along with the photographs are artists’ words of gratitude about their work spaces, surroundings, and opportunities to pursue work they love.
Aware of the popularity and importance of Birds in Art, the Museum made the decision to reschedule the winter exhibitions, The Global Language of Headwear: Cultural Identity, Rites of Passage & Spirituality and the concurrent Stormy Kromer: Evolution of a Classic, and extend Birds in Art into late February 2021. This potentially allows additional time for visitors to experience the 45th edition of Birds in Art, provided the pandemic allows a timely reopening.
Master Time? Yes. Time to announce the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s 2020 Birds in Art Master Artist. In tandem with the 2020 exhibition, the Woodson Art Museum will honor Timothy David Mayhew with the Master Wildlife Artist Medal.
