THE BIRDING LIFE, a group exhibition of art in all media by various artists who use bird imagery as implied or symbolic references including those featured in the book The Birding Life: A Passion for Birds at Home and Afield; Clarkson Potter Publishers. Evocative and powerful, the marvelous beauty of the bird has long inspired artists to honor them in their artwork. Such bird-themed art informs the homes and working spaces of the birders, artists, collectors, and conservationists alike. This exhibition features such inspired work in all medium from ceramic sculpture and pottery, paintings, prints and photographs.

Through more than twenty delightfully written stories and two hundred gorgeous color photographs, the authors of The Birding Life capture the beauty, intrigue, and fun of birding�at home, in the country, in the city, and out in the field�with a special focus on the nostalgic memorabilia that signals devotion to birds of all kinds.
