‘Ave Aves: Avian Portraits’

Yes, they do love birds. Both Sabra Crockett and Jen DeLeeuw feature birds as majestic and magical. “They deserve center stage, because they are entertaining performers … ,” said Crockett. “It is vital that these somewhat mundane and overlooked creatures are elevated to the realm of importance.” DeLeeuw’s 13 drawings drew from Wallace Stevens’ collection of poems, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird.” Crockett’s 12 paintings were inspired by Byzantine saints. The opening reception is March 13 from 6 to 9 p.m., followed by an April 4 closing reception from 6 to 8 p.m.
