Real Birds Fictional Landscapes
Mixed Media Collages by Helen Lozoraitis
May 2 - June 30 in the Library Meeting Room
An exhibition of bird collages by Helen Lozoraitis will be held in the Library Meeting Room Gallery for the months of May and June.
Lozoraitis is well known for her collages, which have been exhibited at the Audubon society’s quarters at Wellfleet Bay. Lozoraitis’ work sets photographs of birds into landscapes using a collage method. She has managed to give a different perspective on the life and habitat of these creatures. Her collages incorporate textiles, papers from books and magazines combined with painting.
She says of her work: “While I cherish my connection with the planet and its inhabitants, I also despair of the environmental destruction that we humans are inflicting. In my art I try to express my respect for our fellow species as well as my deep concern about their welfare, celebrating their existence in the hope that others will too. My collages act as small shrines to these elegant beings so different from us and yet so closely connected; that I have has the privilege to observe and photograph in our shared corner of the world…”
There will be an opening reception on May 6th when Helen Lozoraitis will be on hand to discuss her work and explain her techniques.
Exhibitions are free and handicapped accessible. Exhibitions in the library meeting room are available for viewing whenever the library is open and the room is not in use for a meeting. Please check the library Events Calendar for availability.
