Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding

Thursday, December 14, 2006


Tomorrow evening, the Arnot Art Museum in Elmira, New York will host an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30pm for Birds In Art, the well-known annual touring exhibition of avian-oriented art organized by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. The exhibition includes 60 pieces of sculpture and flatwork, including my own "Malaysian Rhinoceros Hornbill" (above). Some of you may recall my whining last spring about being rejected by this year's jury, and wonder what my work is doing in Elmira. This is actually the final venue of the 2005 touring show, which, after premiering at the Woodson in September '05, visited the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Wyoming and the Museum of the Red River in isabel, Oklahoma before making this final stop.

Carel, you have more different and unique bird poses than anyone I've ever seen. That you pull them off is actually quite amazing. This hornbill hopping down the limb and birds with asymmetrically posed wings. You've got me thinking about being a little more adverturous with my own bird images.
