Birds of Feather
Birds of a Feather
Anthony Smith and Joel Phelan
Exhibition runs from 17th of July until 26th of August (sadly as this is a secure building the exhibition is closed to the public - please look at the artists websites for more details of where their work can be seen in the public domain)
Anthony Smith is a very accomplished professional artist specialising in wildlife and bird paintings. He is currently the working artist for Chester Zoo and exhibits regularly at the ‘Society of Wildlife Artists’ at the Mall Galleries, London and at the National Exhibition of Wildlife Art.
Joel Phelan or Joel Bird is a prolific young artist/musician/sculptor who will be showing his expressive studies of birds - paintings and sculptures. His paintings of birds have realistic qualities but are stylised to reflect the personality of the birds and the environment they live in. Originally from Liverpool, Joel has recently moved to London. His artwork is shown extensively in Britain and USA, with a show planned for Philadelphia in March 2010.
