Avian Inspirations with Tony Angell

Author, illustrator and sculptor Tony Angell has won numerous writing and artistic awards for his work on behalf of nature including the prestigious Master Artist Award of the Leigh Yawkey Art Museum. His sculptural forms celebrating nature are to be found in public and private collections throughout the country. Tony has worked actively as a board member of Washington's chapter of The Nature Conservancy, is an elected Fellow of the National Sculpture Society, and retired in 2002 as Director of Environmental Education for the state of Washington after 30 years. Since the 1970s Tony has published a number of books, principally about the birds of the Northwest. Tony will present a look at one artist's history of responding creatively in stone, bronze and line to the rich and diverse bird forms and personalities in the Pacific Northwest.
