The “Bird” show comes down on August 14 so don’t miss your opportunity to see my anthropomorphic bird dolls at the Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, Vermont. Gallery hours are 9:30-5:30 Tuesday through Friday and 10:00-5:00 on Saturday.
This show truly one of the most beautiful group shows I have ever been included in. You don’t want to miss it.
See a preview of the show on the gallery blog: www.fsgalleryvt.wordpress.com
“All four artists in this exhibition look well beyond the avian bird form and deep into an exploration of how birds are part of our collective psyche. Since the beginning of time – through art, science, mythology, childhood memories, and daily life – birds have populated our explanations of the world. The desire to imbue birds with supernatural powers is a universal one and time and time again we call on them to bridge a gap between the known and the ineffable. I like to think of each of these pieces as avatars- enigmatic beings that work in different ways to clarify and enrich our understanding of the world.”
Adelaide Tyrol is the curator for this exhibit which explores the bird kingdom through reality, myth, fantasy, and intuition.
