17th Annual Wildlife Art Show slated for May 1-2

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Art Center has announced that it will present the 17th Annual Wildlife Art Show on May 1 and 2. The show will include wildlife and nature art in all mediums and disciplines. This combined art event features the 17th Annual Reflections of Nature in the Janice Griffiths Gallery, in conjunction with the inaugural Nature in Miniature exhibition in the Salon Gallery.

Founded by award-winning Fallbrook artist and nature conservationist Gamini Ratnavira, the Reflections of Nature art event showcases the wonderful world of the wild and reminds visitors of the importance of preserving its beauty.

“Now more than ever, people are becoming aware of the need to preserve nature, and the show offers a unique opportunity to interact with people who have dedicated their lives to telling nature’s story through their art,” says Mary Perhacs, executive director of the Fallbrook Art Center.

All 21 artists will be present at the show to talk with visitors. Most of these artists travel the world seeking inspiration for their work, and have many stories to share. This is one of the elements of the show that make it such a wonderful event.

New in 2010, the Fallbrook Art Center expanded their very popular show to include the inaugural Nature in Miniature to afford the opportunity for emerging artists to participate in the 17th Annual Wildlife Art Show & Sale. Nature in Miniature is a supplemental juried show in the Salon Gallery, featuring miniature wildlife works by eight additional artists.

Nature’s diversity is evident in the art presented by artists from across the country working in a broad range of mediums and disciplines including “plein air” to portray the world’s wildlife and the landscapes that sustain them.

Invitational opening reception will be held April 30, 2010 from 6 to 8 pm for FAC premier members and show sponsors.

The exhibition will be open at 103 S. Main Avenue on May 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and May 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For admission and more information, visit
