New London native featured in international show
New London native Becca (Littmann) Mulenburg is among 114 worldwide artists featured in the 42nd annual “Birds in Art” exhibition, on view Sept. 9 through Nov. 26 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.
Mulenburg is showing her work titled “Blackbird on Washington Island,” an oil painting depicting a female Red-winged Blackbird from Washington Island, Wisconsin.
In her inaugural year of being juried into this show, Mulenburg said she is excited to show her work amongst some of the greatest living bird artists in the world.
“It will be a humbling experience, of that I am certain,” she said.
The artist currently resides in Duluth, Minnesota. Mulenburg has concentrated solely on painting birds for the last few years. Only referencing birds from personal experience, this particular bird in her painting was seen on Lake Michigan’s shoreline at Percy Johnson County Park on Washington Island.
All-new artwork features dynamic and contemplative interpretations of avian marvels via original paintings, sculptures, and graphics created within the last three years.
This year’s “Birds in Art” exhibition includes 22 international artists, six from Wisconsin, and 19 first-time “Birds in Art” artists. The six Wisconsin artists are Clarence P. Cameron, Madison; Gary Eigenberger, Green Bay; David Kapszukiewicz, Tomahawk; S.V. Medaris, Mount Horeb; Don Rambadt, Milwaukee; and Jan McAllaster Stommes, Owen.
A 134-page full-color, illustrated “Birds in Art” catalogue featuring every artwork along with artists’ statements will be available for purchase.
