"It's For The Birds"

I'm super-excited to have been asked to be a guest artist in next month's show at the Graton Gallery! The show is Sally Baker's, and it is called "It's for the Birds." I am one of 4 artists in the show. Sally Baker will have watercolors depicting her collection of Japanese Bird salt & pepper shakers. Sally's work is extremely detailed, and I honestly can't imagine how she gets such realism using watercolor. Lynda Nugent will have multimedia paintings inspired by nature, and Carla Marie Bratt will have incredible handcrafted gourds - with a birdie theme, of course. I feel very lucky to be included in this group of artists, and I can't think of a gallery I'd rather be in!
The show runs for a month - April 13th - May 23, 2010, with an artists' reception on Saturday, April 17, 3-6pm.




Here are a few of my needle-felted bird sculptures that will be in the show:



Graton is a charming little 2-block-long town with restaurants, a tea room, antiques, art studios and galleries. It is located in-between Occidental and Sebastopol in Western Sonoma County.

Thanks, Dennis! A quail is in the works for you as soon as I come up for air. And guess what? I got a lead on REAL Quail plumes!

Is Henrietta going to be in the show too?

Nancy said...

No, I don't think I can part with Henrietta.

Real Quail plumes, wow! How many quail did you have to kill for those? ;-) Your bluejay is awfully cool and the goldfinches nice too. Makes me wonder if I want a more colorful bird?? Maybe even a mallard duck??? But then there's the robin.....maybe we can do some trading?
