Bedford Gallery - Bird, Nest, Nature

July 12 - September 13, 2020

Bird, Nest, Nature is a juried and invitational exhibition featuring a roster of local and national artists. Birds have captured the attention of humankind since the beginning of time. The earliest evidence of our love of birds can be found in cave drawings that reflect all that we cherish in nature from flora to fauna. Birdsongs and birdcalls, incorporated into artworks and compositions for hundreds of years, still inspire contemporary artists today. With their exquisite coloring, stunning tufts of feathers, distinctive silhouettes and graceful flight patterns, birds entice us to look up and marvel.  Jurors: Jeffrey De Blois, Assistant Curator, ICA Boston and Rebecca Lowery, Assistant Curator, MOCA Los Angeles.

Opening Reception: July 12 from 3 - 5 pm
