The group exhibition Of a Feather showcases the rich relationship between birds and the artists who love them. Birds have long held a prominent place in art: physically they fascinate with their visual beauty, flight, music, and dance, and symbolically they function as harbingers of death, keepers of secrets (“‘a little bird told me”), and, like the dove, bearers of peace.

Featuring artists Kathy Boortz, Isabelle Du Toit, Billy Hassell, Mark Messersmith, and Melodee Ramirez this exhibition celebrates a very contemporary expression of the unique coloring, exciting patterns, and distinctive silhouettes of these winged creatures.

The exhibition will run April 5 – May 5, 2019, at the Beatrice M. Haggerty Gallery with the opening reception on Friday, April 12, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Gallery will be closed April 19 – 22 in observance of Easter.

Reception:  Friday, April 12, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

Gallery Artist Talks: Wednesday, April 24, at 6:00 p.m., refreshments served in the gallery from 5:00 p.m.

Where: Beatrice M. Haggerty and Thompson Loggia, University of Dallas.
