My Solo exhibition at Gallery Route One, Point Reyes Station, CA, titled “For the Birds” is on view from Oct. 25 – Dec. 1, 2013, and the exhibition contains mixed media sculpture installations and photographs related to my “For the Birds” public art project and residency in Pt. Reyes during the month of September. This public art project and school residency was a project of Gallery Route One’s Project Space and sponsored by the Lucid Art Foundation and the West Marin Community Foundation. There are several wing sculptures made from found branches in the show, and they are on display along with many additional handmade paper bird feathers so that visitors can write some wishes for the environment on a paper feather and hang it in the gallery on a wing.
The large nest created in the Commons in Point Reyes Station is still on display with its many handmade paper feathers. Also, the small nests created in public workshops and by the children at West Marin Elementary School are also still being displayed along Main Street (Hwy 1) in Point Reyes Station, CA. They will remain on view through Dec. 1, 2013, or until they biodegrade or the bird seeds get eaten by the birds.
Thanks to the Gallery Route One Exhibition Committee and Project Space coordinators, Mary Eubank and Zea Moritz for their help in installing the show. Thanks also to my husband Timothy S. Allen for taking all the photos of the “For the Birds” project. For more photos by Tim, take a look at his Blog at http://allentimphotos2.wordpress.com
