Once upon a branch – Avian art by Helen Barnard

October 7, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - November 2, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Exhibition opening 5.30pm, 7 October – Continuing until 2 November

‘Once upon a branch’ is a collection of watercolour avian art inspired by the moments and experiences we share in everyday life with birds. It’s a celebration of these fascinating fragile creatures and the diversity of the people who are captivated by our feathered friends. Be it from watching and admiring their exquisite intricacies, or perplexing habits, or our own interactions with them. They give us a sense of place and past, and have had a prominent place in human culture and our understanding of the world around us.

Watercolour is the perfect medium to capture the delicate and intricate details in birds, reminding us of their natural beauty, and the importance of conserving the beautiful and fragile Tasmanian ecosystems they inhabit.
