Birds have long been a fascination of the human imagination. These nine artworks from the Woodstock Art Gallery’s permanent collection speak to a wide geographic area as well as a diversity of cultural perspectives. Across these works, the bird is rendered more than just a humble creature of flesh and feather, but is transmuted through the artist’s brush or chisel into an expression of the human spirit. Whatever our physical differences, artists have long sought to convey that birds and humans are of a feather.
