#564 Art shows: Birds in Art 2014

The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconson opened its 39th annual Birds in Art Exhibition last weekend and it will run to November 16.  The prestigious show features art by 112 artists from around the world - 92 juried artists and 20 who have been named Master Artists in previous years by the museum.  Works by the Master Artists includes 15 paintings by the 2014 recipient Barry Van Dusen, who received the Master Wildlife Artist Medal during the opening weekend.

The fun-filled four days was a whirlwind of activey!  Camaraderie with fellow artists, guests, museum staff, and wonderful art, food, entertainment, and all things bird-related insured a fabulous and educational experience.

Below,  I was informed this week that "King of the Coop" has been purchased by the museum.
I'm delighted to have the sculpture be a part of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson's permanent collection.
