2015 Taking Flight: Birds in Art Tohono Chul Exhibit House Main Gallery

Larry Gotkin's award-winning Birdka Kukri Knife and his Khanjar Persian Daggar were accepted for display at the juried Taking Flight: Birds In Art show at Tohono Chul Park (Exhibit House Main Gallery) from Friday, November 13 – Sunday, February 14, 2016.

Artists Reception: Friday, November 13 , 2015, 5:30 - 7:30pm (free & open to the public)

Show Description: Just as birders are finely tuned to their surroundings so too is the artist. Knowledge, patience, and a heightening of all of the senses is required for imaginative and informative discoveries in both fields. Taking Flight: Birds in Art sets its sights squarely on a group of artists exploring a variety of themes and environments with each path leading to a better understanding of the natural world. This inquiry into the avian world through the modes of allegory, symbolism, abstraction, and representation will unveil formal investigations of color, pattern, and form as well as statements concerned with science, history, and conservation. Binoculars will not be necessary.

The gallery and its programs are open to the public (see hours, directions, admission prices, and other details below).
