AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHS ON DISPLAY AT BRICKWORKS GALLERY ROADSHOW OF 2018 BEST AVIAN PHOTOS COMING TO ATLANTA FEBRUARY 9 TO 24
Atlanta Audubon and Brickworks Gallery will host the Audubon Photography Awards Exhibit from February 9 through 24, 2019 at Brickworks Gallery, near the Atlanta BeltLine. A public opening event is planned for Saturday, February 9, from 4:30 to 7:00 PM at Brickworks Gallery. David Ringer, National Audubon Society’s chief network officer, will be in attendance to meet Atlanta Audubon members and guests from 4:30 to 5:30 PM. In addition to promoting greater strength, diversity, and capacity throughout the Audubon network, David leads Audubon’s BirdFriendly Communities program, in which Atlanta Audubon is a leading national chapter. The event is free to attend, but registration is requested.
Selected from more than 8,000 entries, the winning photos were published in the Summer 2018 issue of Audubon Magazine and show bird life at its most vivid, vulnerable, formidable, and elegant. This year’s exquisite photographs celebrate the splendor of many bird species protected under the 100-year-old Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), the most important bird conservation law, which is currently under siege in Congress and by the Department of the Interior.
Following the public opening event on February 9, the exhibit will be open for viewing through February 24 at Brickworks Gallery, located at 686-A Greenwood Avenue NE, in Atlanta.
