On Display January 5 - February 16, 2019 Artists Reception: Sunday, January 13, 2019, 4-7pm Special Guest: Shadow (a live great gray owl)
Shadow, a live great gray owl ambassador from Lindsay Wildlife Experience, will visit the gallery from 4-6pm. Guests will have an opportunity to spend time with our largest North American owl on a very intimate level.
Enjoy the exhibition featuring works by Wendy and Jeff, and fellow artists Maggie Hurley, Hallie Strock and Valerie Sobel, as well as viewing the workspace and display of 18 other local artists in the 4th Street Fine Art collective. The gallery in the South Fourth (SoFo) district is an easy stroll from the restaurants and shops of 4th Street in Berkeley.
We suspect you too will say, “Look at those eyes!” when you meet Shadow and view the images in this show. Light refreshments will be provided.
A word from the artists:
Wendy and Jeff spend hours observing and photographing animals in the wild. An experience in Kenya with a blue-eyed leopard was the inspiration behind the title of this show. Their reaction when they first saw this magnificent animal was “Look at those eyes!”
Eyes are an integral part of all living things, but predators must rely upon keen eyesight to locate and hunt for prey. This show will feature a variety of images of predators who have captivating eyes.
Wendy and Jeff are both native Californians and reside in Pleasant Hill. They have been shooting together since 1980 and have spent thousands of hours observing and photographing wildlife. They sell their photographs through 4th Street Fine Art, as well Getty Images, Dreamstime, iStock. Their work has been displayed at Lindsay Wildlife Experience and their images can be found on several eco-lodge and nonprofit websites. Wendy and Jeff have been involved with the Lindsay Wildlife Experience in Walnut Creek since 1985 rehabilitating wildlife and educating the public about conservation issues and best practices to coexist with wildlife.
