The Wildling takes wing
The Wildling Art Museum will host the Wild Wings exhibition through July 1 at the museum, 2928 San Marcos Ave. in Los Olivos.
Photographers from throughout California were invited to showcase their talents as photographers on the subject of birds for the museum’s spring competition. The 25 winning entries were chosen from 230 submitted and will be on display in the museum’s Goodall Education Center.
Marc Muench, a professional photographer; Karen Sinsheimer, director of photography at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art; and Stacey Otte, executive director of the Wildling, were the judges. The top three winning photographs were Antoinette Addison’s first-place Pure Love, Chris Seaton’s second-place Owl, and Carrie Kitley’s third-place Avila Watchman.
Honorable mentions were given to Michael Caroff’s Water Dance and Secretary 1, Lynn P. Kirst’s Patterned Wing, Ines Labunski Roberts’s I Am Watching You, and Bruce Straits’ Sandhill Cranes.
Other artists whose photographs were selected for exhibition include Morgan Ball, Terryl Bunn, Elaine Calvert, Richard R. Hansen, Sandy Harris, Brett Higgins, Jane Kametani, Richard Lindekens, Elizabeth Muraoka, Lillian Smith, and David Wight.
