Brandon Artists Guild features wildlife woodcarvings and floral photographs

BRANDON — The BAG (Brandon Artists Guild) welcomes spring with a new exhibit of floral photographs by Richard Conrad and wildlife woodcarving by William Barnard. The show, “Fish, Fowl & Flowers” runs May 3-June 27. 
Vermont artists Barnard and Conrad both find inspiration from observing nature, sometimes with scientific precision. 
“I’m a vertebrate ecologist,” said Barnard. “The beginnings of my interest in art are reflected in the pages of my field notes.”  Like nature itself, Barnard’s carved wooden fish, birds and other animals have evolved as he experiments with new techniques and media. “My early carvings were intended to be as realistic as my skills permitted, lately I’ve done a few more abstract pieces.” Conrad started taking photos in New York City in the 1960s. A move to Vermont in 1995 changed his focus. “I enjoy photographing Vermont’s varied countryside throughout the year as well as its small towns and villages,” he said. “I also enjoy garden photography.  My wife is an avid gardener and landscape designer. We get to see and share our visited gardens from two entirely different perspectives.” See the exhibit at 7 Center Street in Brandon. The gallery is open daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For more info call (802) 247-4956 or visit www.BrandonArtistsGuild.org.
