Birds of a Feather

Opening Reception February 6th 6-9pm

You’ve seen flocks of birds in close formation headed south for the winter or flocks of Swifts circling a chimney on a summer’s evening. This common observation of nature appears to be the origin of the old proverb ‘Birds of a Feather’ which dates back to the mid 16th century.

Tipping Paint Gallery joined 311 Gallery to challenge artists to take this metaphor of personification and apply it to our modern world. February’s shows will look at the modern interpretation, be it a marker for collaboration, people grouped in a certain way, inanimate objects that are found together or a flock of birds.
