“Birds in Nature” – Wood Sculpture by Don Howell & Paintings by Mark Stash

Birds in Nature is one of our current exhibits at Upstairs Main Street. Don Howell’s brightly colored bird carvings and Mark Stash’s  tightly rendered watercolor and gouache paintings interplay, combining 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works in a complementary way.

These two artists may work in different mediums, but their appreciation of nature ties their work together. Both Stash and Howell’s depictions of birds allow us to appreciate their presence in the natural world surrounding us.

Stop by to see the show! These carvings and paintings should really be viewed in person to fully appreciate their vibrant colors and detailing.

Exhibition Dates: June 6–July 26, 2014
