BRI-Sponsored Art Exhibits Featured in Maine Today

Library Exhibit Lets You Enter the Endangered Zone
By Bob Keyes

“Mountain Gorilla” by Michael Boardman 

Prepare to be stunned.

A new art exhibition at the Portland Public Library features life-size and realistically rendered paintings in full color of two dozen of the world’s endangered animals, depicted by New England’s top wildlife artists. The detail in some of the paintings brings the creatures into close view, offering direct insight into what these animals really look like and, perhaps, even a window into their soul.

The show is called “A Critical Balance: Artists Take Action” and is presented by the Biodiversity Research Institute. It is being exhibited in the Lewis Gallery at the library in tandem with another exhibition at the library, “Conserve the Call,” which relates to a loon symposium.
