Exhibit: The Birds Are Watching
In her GAAC Lobby Gallery exhibit, The Birds Are Watching, Jessica Kovan “asks viewers to pay attention from the vantage point of local bird species, in hopes of establishing a sense of interconnectedness between all beings. As birds become threatened, endangered and disappear altogether, do we notice? Do we recognize our role in these changes?”
A resident of Benzie County, Kovan enjoys combining her love of painting with her love of teaching and nature. Read more about Jessica Kovan here: www.jessicakovan.com
GO DEEPER: In a recorded conversation, Jessica Kovan talks about how her life and her artmaking are all of a piece, how she translates the world she observes through her creative work, and what – exactly – it is the birds are watching. Watch it here.
