Feeling Under The "Feather"? Take Flight With The Birds Of PreShrunk 2022...

With this weekend's gloomy weather forecast, we thought we'd cheer you up with some amazing art from this year's PreShrunk 2022 exhibition.  As you know, we receive hundreds of submissions from artists each year. As you might expect patterns of subject matter begin to emerge and take "flight". From landscapes to still life to portraits, all are represented here. 

Today we'd like to explore another popular theme in many of our PreShrunk exhibitions...Birds!

We've got something to offer art lovers, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts alike! Take a moment now to peruse some of our favorites...
