Crane Music

Event has passed!

Lauris Phillips will be presenting Crane Music, an exhibit of her paintings of Sandhill Cranes, in the West gallery. She works in both Japanese ink (sumi) and watercolors made from found materials. Her work is grounded in the simplicity and energy of Japanese Sumi-e (ink painting), and in her personal work with the Greater Sandhill Cranes at the Modoc National Wildlife Refuge.

Join Lauris during the Open Space online Crane Festival on November 21st as she shares her experiences, along with her photos and art, of the threatened nesting population of Greater Sandhills in California. Since 2016, she has been documenting the family life of these cranes and has volunteered hundreds of hours in a 34-year banding program for the Modoc Refuge.

You can view her work at:

Oct 31, 2020 9:00am – Jan 23, 2021 5:00pm
Hours: Tuesday – Saturday 9:00am – 5:00pm
