Birds, in all of their majesty and fragility, connect us with the natural world and have been the source of artistic inspiration for millennia.
Today, talented artists from across the globe vie for membership in the exclusive cadre of avian artists chosen to exhibit in "Birds in Art." Now into its fifth decade, Birds in Art is recognized around the world
as the exhibition that sets the standard for avian art.
Organized by The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, this exhibition presents a juried collection of 60 outstanding contemporary artistic interpretations of birds and related subject matter. Two- and three-dimensional artworks in all media, except crafts and photography, are included. More than 60 artists have created original paintings, sculptures, and graphics, within the past three years, for inclusion in this 42nd annual exhibition. Wildlife enthusiasts, ornithologists, and backyard birders will be delighted by the quality and variety of the artworks that capture birds in all their natural splendor.
Fully illustrated catalogues will be available for purchase.
