TONY ANGELL | ALOFT AND AT REST | VIP PREVIEW
There is a curious reciprocity between the artist and the subject. The subject becomes the teacher/instructor, revealing secrets, posing questions and fashioning mysteries as I try to pay it tribute in the work. It is an ongoing adventure I hope to sustain to the end of my days and I remind myself that while science can tell us what is probable, art can explore the possible. -- Tony Angell
Aloft and At Rest, new sculpture by Tony Angell, celebrates 50 years of exhibiting with Foster/White. Angell's representations of birds provide both scientific accuracy and a virtuoso sense for the inner temperament of his subjects to convey their intangible spirit and resilience.
Tony Angell’s work is featured in dozens of gallery and museum exhibitions across the United States, including the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI; Museum of Northwest Art, La Conner, WA; and the Gilcrease Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK. His art can be found in many private and public collections including the Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA; Seattle Art Museum, Seattle, WA; Museum of Wildlife Art, Jackson, WY; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK. His book The House of Owls received the National Outdoor Book Award when Yale University Press published it in 2015. Angell's clayboard drawings illustrate Bird Day: A Story of 24 Hours and 24 Avian Lives, co-authored with Mark E. Hauber, and anticipated autumn, 2023.
