Bronze editions of the driftwood heron pair titled “Matters of the Heart” were recently selected for two international art exhibitions, one in London, England, and one in Qingdao, China.
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation selected “Matters of the Heart” as a finalist in their tenth annual Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. The work will be displayed at the exhibition from June 28 through July 2, 2017. The wildlife artist of the year will be announced, along with other award winners, at the opening ceremonies on the evening of June 27.
The other bronze sculpture of the heron pair is part of the Artists for Conservation Foundation’s touring exhibit “The Art of Conservation” which travels to Qingdao, China. The exhibition takes place at the Lan Wan Art Gallery in Lan Wan Art Park, a relatively new 300 acre ecological park, monumental sculpture garden and art village centrally located in one of China’s most beautiful and important coastal cities, Qingdao City. The Art of Conservation Exhibition runs from August 1 through September 30, 2017.
