The culmination of months of collaboration, this past Saturday The Metchosin Foundation, The Metchosin Art Pod, and Rocky Point Bird Observatory released the Southwestern BC Art Bird Card series. A small (socially distanced) event for the project contributors was held outdoors at Bilston Creek Farm, on a typical sunny and windy Metchosin summer day.
Members from the Metchosin Foundation board, Ann Nightingale (Rocky Point Bird Observatory), Memet Burnett (Metchosin Art Pod), and contributing artists were in attendance, and scaled-up prints of the cards were hung on trees around the farm, making for a very pleasant mini art tour.
Many thanks to Bilston Creek Farm who generously donated their beautiful space for the event. The lavender fields, and ice cream, were spectacular. Such an idyllic setting to put on a wedding or other large gathering, right here in Metchosin.
We are very pleased to announce the first printing Art Bird Cards are now available for sale! $20 on heavy stock paper, or $25 for the waterproof/tearproof version – perfect for birding expeditions on the Wet Coast. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to order yours!
