featuring Bird Photography by Jim Cyb
and Bird Paintings by Teri Sloat
The Sebastopol Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of our new show titled "Wings" featuring the works of Painter Teri Sloat and Photographer Jim Cyb.
In their own words:
Jim Cyb: I started photographing birds because I was fascinated by the challenge of capturing them in flight. While doing so, I became witness to their daily struggle for survival. Once this happened, everything changed for me. Now I photograph birds to capture the essence of being a bird, to show how they go about their lives, and to show what magnificent creatures they are.
Teri Sloat: I have wanted to fly since grade school and found the same pleasure in drawing and watching birds. . My art for this show is a tribute to the transcendent connection between humans and birds. Whether painting birds from nature or folkloric birds from my imagination, I am in good company as I paint the patterns and iridescent colors of feathers, and capture the amazing eyes of my subjects.
Opening Reception will be held at the Sebastopol Gallery on May 9, 2015 from 4-6 PM
