Monday, September 19, 2011
Connecticut Audubon Society is bringing together talented artists from around the country who specialize in avian art during its second annual Birds In Their Habitat juried artists’ exhibition and sale.
This annual family-oriented event is taking place September 24-25 from 10 AM - 4 PM.
Gifted artists working in a variety of media have been selected to display and sell their works. Media includes: painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, wood carving and fine art crafts.
In addition, Connecticut Audubon Society has selected Floyd Scholz as its 2011 “artist of the year.” A professional carver since 1983 and in his 41st year of carving, Floyd Scholz is universally recognized as a top carver of birds in the world. His portrayal of eagles, hawks, owls and many other large birds has won him a large international following and many top awards at major shows throughout the country.
