This years special guest artist and juror is Terry Isaac. Being juried into this years show is an honor to me since Terry's work is some of the first wildlife artwork that I started to look at about ten years ago. His work and some others are what helped to push me towards what I do today.
"Out of the Darkness (Saw-whet Owl)," Graphite pencil, 5 x 11
"Out of the Darkness" was also selected for the 2008 Kentucky National Wildlife Art Exhibit and was awarded the Stonebridge Promotions Award from that exhibition.
I traveled the James River with Richmond Audubon Society members and biologists from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries and the VCU Rice Center who were studying the nocturnal migration patterns of the Northern Saw-whet Owl. Each autumn researchers and volunteers from Canada south to Virginia in the east and Colorado in the west, band and release several thousand of these tiny raptors. In 2007-08, Virginia banding stations, including the one at the VCU Rice Center, established for the first time that central Virginia is a significant wintering area for this species.
