Please join Margaret Hancock, owner of Margaret Hancock Studio, for a talk about bird imagery in art. Across cultures and throughout time, birds have inspired artists. From cave paintings in Australia, to Audubon illustrations and contemporary depictions like those in "Winging It," Hancock's talk will explore a variety of species, cultures, media and methods of working.
Hancock is the former Curator and Director of Programs at the Virginia Center for Architecture. She also worked at the Savannah College of Art and Design, University of Virginia Art Museum, and National Trust for Historic Preservation. Hancock holds her M.Ed. from the University of Virginia and B.A. in Art History from Duke University.
