WAUSAU, WISCONSIN: Mesmerizing artwork by 123 of the world’s most talented artists serves as a fitting tribute to this year’s milestone 40th annual “Birds in Art” exhibition on view September 12 through November 29 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. Varied and accomplished depictions of avian life, from regal poses, lively gatherings, and calm repose to sculptural statements and whimsical “trompe l’oeil” works highlight why throughout four decades “Birds in Art” has earned international esteem.  

      The 2015 exhibition includes the work of 102 artists, selected by three jurors, and 21 who have been named Master Artists during previous “Birds in Art” exhibitions. Artwork from 607 artists was submitted for the 2015 jury’s consideration. The 2015 jurors were Danny Bills, curator of collections and exhibitions, Wichita Falls Museum at Midwestern State University, Wichita Falls, Texas; Virginia Eichhorn, director and chief curator, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada; and Terry Pitts, director emeritus, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. This year’s edition includes 28 international artists and 11 first-time “Birds in Art” artists.

As a result of habitat loss caused by human expansion, the populations of many bird species are declining at a drastic rate and run the risk of extinction. Human civilization is temporary. The extinction of a species is permanent. Like the cerulean warbler, which nests in the mature deciduous forests of Southwestern Michigan, many species require specific habitats to flourish, and deforestation and the loss of these specific ecosystems has led to their decline.
