2D wildlife art featuring the indigenous species of Kentucky
Deadline: Friday, January 4th, 2019
Exhibition: March 4 – May 31st, 2019
Starting with the painter and naturalist John James Audubon (1785-1851), Kentucky has a long history with artists using paint and charcoal to capturing the state’s abundant wildlife. Before the development of photograph, the rendering of animals and birds was the chief practice for documenting different species for scientific journals and books. This practice is as strong as ever with many talented artists still using wildlife as their subject matter. Kentucky Wildlife will feature this diverse group of gifted artists that depict the subtle beauty of Kentucky’s animal life with paint and pencil.
For this exhibition, the Living Arts and Science Center is doing a regional call seeking 2d wildlife art featuring the indigenous species of Kentucky. The results of this call will be on display in the LASC’s Atrium Gallery this spring. The full exhibition will run March 4 – May 31st with a Gallery Hop reception scheduled for Friday, March 15th from 5:00PM to 8:00PM and an artist talk at 6:00PM.
