April 3 – May 31, 2015
Opening reception: Friday, April 3, 5-7 p.m.
Artist’s Workshop: May 30, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. ($30)
Bird Dance presents a confluence of birds in motion. Artist Faith Revell’s drawings and paintings exude a strong kinesthetic quality, are often gestural in nature, and focus on movement. These images will be paired with selected artifacts from the Pratt Museum’s natural history collection, as well as video and audio of birds in motion. Explore birds in motion through a variety of perspectives in Bird Dance.
Join Faith on May 30 for “Gesture and Form in Nature.” This workshop, geared toward adult and young adult artists, will start with a field session of outdoor observation and gestural drawing. After lunch, students will return to the museum for a gallery talk, additional drawing of mounted birds, and then move to a workshop space for final projects. Workshop space is limited.

This exhibit is supported in part by Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, Alaska State Council on the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and City of Homer.
