These Birds Can Fly
A pair of herons titled “Matters of the Heart” was selected for two international art shows, one in London, England, and the other in Qingdao, China, with both exhibits occurring in the summer of 2017.
The first bronze in a limited edition of twelve is on exhibit at the Qingdao Lan Wan Art Gallery in Lan Wan Art Park – a relatively new 300 acre ecological park, monumental sculpture garden, and art village, in one of China’s most beautiful and important coastal cities, Qingdao City. The Art of Conservation International Exhibition runs from August 1 through September 30, and is part of the Artists for Conservation Foundation’s annual touring exhibition for 2017.
The second bronze edition of the herons was short listed as a finalist in the 10th annual “Wildlife Artist of the Year” exhibition and competition sponsored by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. Presented at the Mall Galleries, London, the opening night of the event on June 27th saw “Matters of the Heart” purchased in the first hour of display. Half of the proceeds of all show sales goes directly to protecting threatened wildlife and their habitats.
