Jung Center art opening reception: Magic Birds by Tania Botelho and Silent Conversations by Gary Bachers
Although Tania Botelho's artwork usually deals with challenging topics, Magic Birds, her new collection of drawings and paintings, arose from a desire to escape the turbulence of our times. Botelho carefully observed birds moving, flying, resting and chirping to create whimsical and imaginative portraits of her wild subjects. Magic Birds will be on view in the Main Gallery.
Following a brain aneurism at age 38, Gary Bachers lost the ability to use words, but gained a second career as a visual artist. Since the early 1990s, the former family physician has created a large catalog of intricate colored pencil drawings, many of which feature mandala-like circles and botanical designs. Silent Conversations, a retrospective of Bachers work, will be on view in the Side Gallery.
On view through March 30.
