Wildwing: Paintings by Rosalie Haizlett

In May of 2023, Rosalie Haizlett spent a week immersed in the Peterson collection as an Artist-in-Residence. With her resulting project, Wildwing, she intends to rekindle her childhood appreciation for backyard birds near her home in West Virginia. By zooming in on the artful textures of each bird’s wing, she aims to portray each bird as a vibrant treasure. With her saturated watercolor paintings, she hopes to spark a newfound respect for the frequent flyers in her backyard, finding joy even in our most routine observations.
