I am thrilled to be selected as Featured Artist for the month of April in the Art in the Library program. Over the next month I plan to blog daily on one of the pieces that I will exhibit.
The theme of my exhibit is All Birds Bright and Beautiful. So, why am I starting off with an image of the feral cat that I personally domesticated?
Well, I also hope to give my readers some information on local native birds and the environmental hazards they face. And I’d like to let you know what YOU can do to help our beautiful birds. So, let’s get started!
The US feral cat population is estimated at 60 million. These cats kill one to four billion birds annually in the contiguous US.
You can help: Spay / neuter your pets to reduce over population and keep your cat indoors.
The Art in the Library program is a juried competition. Selected artists exhibit for one month. A reception and program is held on the second Friday of each month. You are invited to my reception, Friday, April 13th from 6-7:30pm, art talk at 6:30pm.
