The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature is pleased to announce Bird’s Eye View: Four Perspectives, on view from March 18 – September 4, 2023, featuring new and recent works by artists Chris Maynard, David Tomb, Shae Warnick, and Chester Wilcox. The public is invited to celebrate the new exhibition at a free opening reception at the Wildling on Sunday, March 19, 2023, from 3 – 5 p.m.

People live among more than an estimated 10,000 bird species worldwide. These animals uniquely inform the works of the four artists featured in this exhibition. Realistic wood carvings by Chester Wilcox, intricately shaped and carved feathers by Chris Maynard, a hand-crafted fabric bird doll aviary by Shae Warnick, and an immersive wetland environment installation by David Tomb all express the magic, mystery, and incredible diversity of the avian world.

“We are excited to share these four artists with our community,” says Stacey Otte-Demangate, Wildling Museum Executive Director. “We hope that the exhibition will encourage our guests to better appreciate birds. They are crucial to ecosystems everywhere and are a constant reminder of the joys and importance of nature wherever you live.”

Bird’s Eye View will also explore the impact of birds in our world – many bird species serve as valuable pollinators, others eat insects and rodents that would otherwise decimate gardens and vegetation, and some help to disperse plant seeds, playing a vital role in biodiversity.
