CANTON, MA- Owls are fascinating creatures. Quiet and carnivorous, with masterful hearing and eyesight, these mysterious birds have inspired artists throughout time.
Only Owls, a new exhibition, opened Sunday, Jan. 27 at the Museum of American Bird Art (formerly Mass Audubon Visual Arts Center). It brings together an array of artistic representations in pencil, charcoal, ink, watercolor, and woodcut drawn from the collections of the Woodson Art Museum and the Museum of American Bird Art.
Visitors will see art by Leonard Baskin, Robert Bateman, Robert Verity Clem, James Coe, Don Eckelberry, Andrea Rich and Arthur Singer, among many others. Each artwork provides insight into the intriguing world of owls while also demonstrating a variety of approaches.
Only Owls was organized by the Woodson Art Museum. It will run Sunday, Jan 27 through April 21, Tuesday-Sunday 1-5pm.
