Audubon to Host Pat Kernan, Staff Illustrator for NYS Museum at Sept 16 Program
Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society will host Pat Kernan, Staff Illustrator for Research and Collections at the New York State Museum, for a special bird-focused program on Friday, September 16 at 7:30pm at the Elm Park United Methodist Church, 401 Chestnut Street, Oneonta, NY.
The New York State Museum in Albany was born from natural history surveys that started in 1836. Out of these surveys soon came illustrated publications that were among the first comprehensive works to document biology and geology in the USA. Many of the original illustrations are still in the collections of the NYSM. Emphasizing birds, Patricia Kernan, will share a few of the historic and contemporary illustrations that are in the collection. She will tie the collection into bird artists working and living in New York State in the past and present.
Patricia Kernan has been staff illustrator for Research and Collections at the NYSM for 28 years. In that capacity she also is the curator of the illustration collection of the biennial, international exhibition Focus on Nature. She is currently working on FON XIV that will be held at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute December 2016-April 2017. FON XIV involves 65 artists from 11 countries and includes many artworks of birds.
The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For additional information, contact DOAS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
