A national exhibition featuring animals and habitats under the threat of extinction will be featured at The Studio Door (3750 30th Street, San Diego) from August 5 to 28, 2016. Juried by Kristin Nielsen of San Diego Zoo Global, Endangered, The Beauty of Lost Species exhibition will cultivate an appreciation and understanding of the diversity of art inspired by nature. Connect with arts and animals by attending the August exhibition, which is free to the public; works are available for sale. Ten percent of art sales will be given to San Diego Zoo. The opening reception will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., Saturday, August 6 at The Studio Door.
The exhibition will include several recent works by American Master Hyacinthe Baron, who hopes to encourage dialogue and action in regard to healthy ecosystems that maintain diverse and sustainability for wildlife and the natural world. Working mainly with recycled and found materials, Hyacinthe brings to life animals through 3-D sculptural paintings.
“When a species is listed as endangered or threatened, they are on the brink of extinction. There is the possibility that these populations will recover with efforts to protect the endangered animals and plants, such as was done with the bald eagle and the American alligator. Many species, however, will not recover, and could be lost forever,” said Patric Stillman, The Studio Door Director. “Our goal with this exhibition is to raise awareness.”
