Birds Take Flight for Summer

To begin the Summer, the Annex Galleries continues our blog with the theme of twenty-five selections from the gallery. Birds are a perfect fit for summer as we spend more and more time outdoors. We do not need to backpack in to Lake Solitude to enjoy ducks landing on water, as in Hans Kleiber ’s Flight of Ducks, as we can view them in local wetlands. Songbirds animate our backyards with their flight and voices, and hens and chicks are becoming a more common sight in suburban neighborhoods.

Not all birds are fragile and graceful and awe us with their stunning plumage as they do in Beverly Hackett ’s East Indian. Not all birds can fly but some can race as seen in Ellen Lanyon’s Ostricart. Not all birds remain wild as seen by the pet macaw and cockatoo in William S. Rice’s Forbidden Fruit.

We have a multifarious relationship with birds. We traverse the world to search for them, we count them, we worship them, we snap our lenses to capture them in winged flight, we feed them, we provided them vessels to bathe in, we protect them with laws, we use them and their eggs for food, we use their by-products for fertilizer, we use their feathers in sacred ceremonies or to enhance ourselves, we race them, we put down bids for their fights, we imbue them with cultural and mythical meanings, and we cage them as pets.

Please click on the text link at the bottom of the image to see the work on our website, along with more information on the particular work and a biography on the artist.

Whatever relationship you have with birds, we hope you will enjoy our twenty-five selections. Call or email the gallery if you have questions or wish to purchase any of the twenty-five works before the birds begin their annual migration.
