Birds, Butterflies, and Blooms, Opening March 22

Pileated Woodpecker, Brenda Cameron

The pileated woodpecker is an elusive species. Despite its large size and shock of scarlet red plumage, youre more likely to hear the avian — specifically its loud, high-pitched kuk-kuk-kuk” call and resounding pecking — than ever see it. But that may change thanks to Birds, Butterflies, and Blooms. Opening in late March at Transylvania Community Arts Council, the group show will feature regional depictions of flighty fauna and flourishing flora. According to a press statement, visitors can expect a flurry of tiger swallowtails, tenacious tulips, and tufted titmice. The pileated woodpecker may also make an appearance, so long as its not too busy excavating appetizing arthropods from hollow pines. Either way, this show is meant to inspire, fascinate, and connect us to the natural world,” says Kathy King, executive director of the Arts Council. The exhibition will also serve as a public debut for students enrolled in the Arts Councils Arts Academy. Our students are excited both to create amazing artwork based on the theme and to see their work displayed with the works of other artists,” says instructor Cindy Rehm.
