I’m EXTREMELY excited to announce that my painting “Sun Catcher” has been accepted into the 2012 Birds in Art exhibition held at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau Wisconsin. 940 entries were submitted by 577 of the best bird artists from all around the world and approximately 100 pieces were accepted. About 60 pieces from the exhibition will be selected at a future date and will go on a year-long nationwide museum tour. This is my first time participating in this exhibition and I’m extremely honored to be included in such a great group of artists!
Since 1976, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum has organized Birds in Art annually, seeking to present the very best contemporary artistic interpretations of birds and related subject matter. During the Birds in Art opening weekend, September 6-9, 2012, the Museum also will celebrate the completion of an approximately 8,500-square-foot building addition and the debut of forty-three Owen Gromme paintings commissioned by M&I Bank in the late 1960s and given to the Woodson in 2011 by BMO Harris Bank.
I will be attending the opening weekend and hope to see you there! It will be a fabulous show!
