Birds in Art 2018
Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum
Sep. 8, 2023 - Nov. 25, 2018
Birds enthrall us with their stunning plumage, amusing antics, and lilting song. Avian art inspires in endlessly novel ways, too, evoking the freedom of flight and the fragility of their earthbound existence. Artists from throughout the world push themselves to new heights, striving to be selected for the internationally renowned Birds in Art exhibition. The 43rd annual exhibition celebrates avian marvels through new interpretations – in an array of mediums, including oil, watercolor, the graphic arts, bronze, stone, and others – created within the last three years. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies Birds in Art and will be available in September 2018. Opening day, Saturday, September 8, part of Wausau’s Artrageous Weekend, provides varied opportunities to interact with more than sixty Birds in Art artists visiting from throughout the world.
