July 12 – October 18, 2020
Bedford Gallery is thrilled to reopen to the public on July 12, 2020 with our juried and invitational exhibition Bird, Nest, Nature. Following guidelines outlined by Contra Costa Health Services, indoor museums, including our gallery, can reopen as of July 1. The health and safety of our visitors is our top priority; please find out more about our new safety protocols and cleaning procedures here.
Bird, Nest, Nature is a juried and invitational exhibition featuring a roster of local and national artists. Birds have long captured the attention of humankind, the earliest evidence of which can be found in cave drawings that reflect all that we cherish in nature from flora to fauna. This exhibition was juried by Jeffrey De Blois, Assistant Curator, ICA Boston and Rebecca Lowery, Assistant Curator, MOCA Los Angeles, and includes over 150 local, national and international artists inspired by the exquisite beauty of creatures of flight.
