For the Birds

The Charlotte Art League joined forces with the Carolina Raptor Center to sponsor an “All Birds Juried Exhibition” benefiting the Raptor Center. The exhibition hangs September 4-25, 2009 in the Charlotte Art League building at 1517 Camden Road.

Opening night, September 4th, was very much a celebration including awards, wine, food, 3 live owls, music, and lots original art focused completely on birds.

Considering my particular interest in backyard birds, this was one show I had to enter. One of my egg/nest paintings, Solo Blue, was selected for the 2nd place award. “Egret” is the other painting in the show.

This event brings home the point that a person should do what they love, and base their creativity on what they know. In this case it paid off. How fun is that!
