I'm off to Wausau, Wisconsin for opening weekend at the Woodson Art Museum's 40th Annual Birds in Art exhibition. You're probably tired of hearing (reading?) me gush about this show, so here's some info from the press release instead:
Varied and accomplished depictions of avian life, from regal poses, lively gatherings, and calm repose to sculptural statements and whimsical trompe l’oeil works highlight why throughout four decades Birds in Art has earned international esteem.
The 2015 exhibition includes the work of 102 artists, selected by three jurors, and 21 who have been named Master Artists during previous Birds in Art exhibitions. Artwork from 607 artists was submitted for the 2015 jury’s consideration.
Opening day, Saturday, September 12, provides varied opportunities to interact with more than 60 Birds in Art artists visiting from throughout the world for the 40th-anniversary festivities.
- The Museum opens at 9 am; meet and mingle with the artists, 9 am-Noon, and get catalogues and posters signed. (Sherrie says, "Hey, one of those posters is by me!")
- Birds in Art Master Artists share insights, 9:30-10:30 am, during brief, image-based presentations under a sculpture garden tent.
- Artists in Action demonstrate various mediums and explain techniques, 10:45 am-12:15 pm. (Sherrie says, "Hey! This is also me!")
See you all next week!
