Imaginations take flight, inspired by new breathtaking depictions of birds by some of the world’s most talented artists who push themselves to new heights, striving to be selected for the internationally renowned Birds in Art exhibition. Majestic yet fragile, amusing, and poignant, birds connect us with the natural world, heralding each dawn and signaling environmental shifts. Savor artistic interpretations and discover anew what inspires you. The 44th annual exhibition features avian wonders through all-new interpretations in original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years. The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s 2019 Master Artist is British colored-pencil artist Alan Woollett, who will be honored during the Museum’s 44th annual Birds in Art exhibition this fall.
