AND ON A STRICTLY SELF-INDULGENT NOTE...
As if blogging itself weren't self-indulgent.) Over at the Wildling Art Museum, they're taking down the one-man show for Bob Kuhn that ended on Sunday. Kuhn is one of the really legendary animal painters; much of the best work being done today has his fingerprints all over it, so it's with chest fully puffed out that I announce that my own little one-man show will be taking the place left by his. The exhibition opens officially on Jan. 18th, and runs through April 2nd. I will appear at the Wildling on Darwin's birthday, Feb. 12, to give a talk about my work, and to give the first signing for my new book. Reservations are required for this event; please refer to the museum's website. If you're going to be in the vicinity of Santa Barbara, CA in the next couple of months, please drop by the Wildling. Thanks to director Elizabeth Knowles and her staff, and to David Wagner, PhD, who curated the show.
While I'm at it, the touring exhibit, Birds in Art, just opened this weekend at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY. It runs through the end of March.
