Prosek Show Continues

 
Prosek Show Continues

     Fairfield University's Bellarmine Museum of Art is extending the exhibition: James Prosek: Un-Natural History, through Fri., Jan. 27. The most-visited show in the museum's history, it features about 20 paintings by the Easton resident as well as taxidermied specimens. Highlights include a watercolor of a sailfish painted to scale (more than 8 feet long), a taxidermied fox with bird wings and a "meticulously rendered" cockatiel with rose-colored plumage. A gifted nature artist and writer, Prosek was first published while still a Yale undergraduate. His work includes Trout: An Illustrated History, the Peabody award-winning documentary The Complete Angler and the children’s book Bird, Butterfly, Eel. Described as someone who combines a scientist’s objectivity with a poet’s lyricism, he has been featured in Connecticut Magazine.

For further info, call (203) 254-4000, ext. 4046, or visit fairfield.edu/museum.
