The show will feature works of art by area artists and artisans in a wide variety of media, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, fiber arts, jewelry, glass and photography, as well as decorative objects such as wreaths and holiday ornaments, bird houses and feeders, yard art, “green” items made of repurposed materials, and Oklahoma-made wines. All art in the show will have a wildlife, nature or ecological theme. Suzie Gilbert, author of the acclaimed memoir “Flyaway: How a Wild Bird Rehabber Sought Adventure and Found Her Wings,” will be the guest speaker, sharing insights from her 20 years of rehabilitating wild birds such as raptors and crows. Admission to “Wild at Art” is free, and proceeds from art sales will go toward helping WING-IT members cover the costs of rehabilitating animals so that they can be returned to the wild.
