Of her work, Aune notes that ” Birds are a joy to paint; capturing all their colors while maintaining their fragility is a challenge.” Mayer remarks that “Birds are the ultimate challenge to create in found art. I am fascinated by the variety of shapes, textures, colors and patterns.” Wolfersperger, a retired professional art instructor, describes herself as becoming a “mad scientist in experimental art.”
The public is invited to a reception at the Gallery Friday July 5 from 5 – 8pm. This is an opportunity to talk with the artists, enjoy the music of acoustical guitarist John Maddox, and admire special visitors– live birds from the NW Florida Wildlife Sanctuary with their handlers. Of proceeds from sales of art by the participating artists during the reception, 10% is donated to the sanctuary. Reception guests may also make donations to the sanctuary in the birdhouse provided.

The Mediterranean societies of antiquity, most notably the Greeks, the Egyptians and the Romans used a paint that consisted of a mixture of beeswax encaustic, mineral pigments like iron or copper and tempera, vegetal like flax, walnut and poppy seed oil were known to these cultures, but there is no specific indication that they were used in paint.
This method of paint creation, as with so much ancient technology, was lost in the intervening years, the final blow to paint creation likely being the fall of Rome. Thereafter the encaustic paint was replaced by oil or tempera paints.
“BMG is a “must” stop when in the Pensacola area. Great gift ideas and wonderful artwork. I never leave without at least one new item in my possession!”

“This is an awesome place to visit, and I really enjoyed the wonderful arts and crafts they had for us, and I hope they continue to have it! Thank you!”
If it wasn’t for Blue Morning Gallery, I don’t think I would have been able to create & sell as many artworks as I have.
Thanks Blue Morning Gallery.
