New Exhibit, Fish and Feather, at Art on Main

May 18, 2018 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Art on Main is pleased to present an exhibit of works by master carver Gary M. Starr of Middlebury and award-winning illustrator Nick Mayer of Lincoln. This combined exhibit reflects the exceptional artistry and technique of two men passionate about the natural world and their creative expression of what they see and experience in it. The Fish and Feather exhibit opens on May 18 with a public reception from 5-7 p.m. and will be on display until July 1.

If asked, Gary Starr will tell you he has seen over 4,300 different birds – in fact he has traveled the world in search of new species – from places as far flung as Antarctica and the Galapagos to the more mundane Kansas. Each place offering new inspiration for his carving work.

Nick Mayer is a full time nature illustrator whose style embraces the natural beauty of fish and other marine life with a unique scientific perspective. He is a former marine biologist, adventurer, and a lifelong fly fishing addict. A skin of his teeth survival falling overboard off a commercial fishing vessel into the Bering Sea followed by a near float plane crash in Northern Labrador inspired Nick to pursue his true calling as an artist. Painting is his passion and he has developed a celebrated touch.
