Birds in Art features work by sixty different contemporary artists, who offer their unique interpretations of the avian world in a variety of media.
The 2020 show (being shown at the Gilley summer 2021) is the 45th iteration of Birds in Art, an international exhibition organized by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin that travels to just a few select venues each year. This is the third visit of Birds in Art to the Gilley, and the show features sixty contemporary artists, including Andrea Rich and Don Rambadt – both of whom have been featured in their own exhibitions at the Gilley – and talented Maine artist Sherrie York. Other artists, spanning a wide variety of media and styles, include Don Rambadt, Jett Brunet, James Coe, Terry Miller, Barry van Dusen and Alan Woollett. Look to the Wendell Gilley website for a variety of great programs that explore Birds in Art.
