Neil Rizos: The Art of Exploration
September 15 – December 10, 2017

For more than 25 years, Rizos has pursued his interest in birds, art and the natural world. He has travelled widely, participating in bird research projects with public and private agencies in North America and Europe. In 2016, he was invited to Austria to observe the European Union’s Northern Bald Ibis reintroduction program. He has been recognized with numerous awards and artist residencies, and his work is in notable private and public collections internationally, including the United States Library of Congress.

This exhibit features over fifty works, reflecting Neil Rizos’ life-long exploration of art and nature. Rizos works in a variety of media, including bronze sculptures, paintings, drawings, pastels, etchings, lithographs and woodcuts.

Cormorants by the Sea – Neil Rizos

Speaking of his recent work, Rizos says, “Birds are the starting point of my artistic journey. Although the species are often recognizable, my purpose is not to copy appearances. Rather, my intention is to make my personal, interior experience visible in a way that engages the viewer deeply; moving through form into that which cannot be grasped, only experienced.”
