Atlantic Wildlife Artwork by Flick Ford

August 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Atlantic Wildlife Artwork by Flick Ford
Opening: August 3rd from 5-7 pm with wine and cheese

At BoP’s Reading Room, beginning on August 3rd, will be an exhibition of work by “Flick Ford: Atlantic Coast Wildlife Artworks and Studies.” This show of Atlantic flora and fauna includes new original masterworks by the talented natural history artist of a striped bass, “Queen of the Rips.” Greenwich Workshop Press in Connecticut will also unveil Ford’s Diamondback Terrapin and Northern Harrier. Small works and studies will be included of the horseshoe crab, an osprey study and the swallow-tailed Kite. These framed works will be available as originals or in limited edition prints. Flick will be on hand to discuss how his work is affected by the current state of the ocean and his awareness of how conservation measures are evident in his life as a natural science illustrator and artist. Ford’s works are often more accurate in chronicling the state of the water that his subjects (species) live in than photographs. This show will be on view until September 15. The gallery is open by appointment and on Fridays and Saturdays from 11-3 p.m.

Ford’s realist style and exact rendering of anatomical proportions of fish can be used to chronicle the state of fresh and salt water fish species in our Atlantic Ocean, rivers, ponds and lakes. The emotive power of his original and print illustrations along with Ford’s subtle and dynamic use of color and interpretation of their lifeways make him one of the best natural science illustrators working today.

Born and raised in Westchester, Flick Ford is also an avid sports fisherman, living and working in Rensselaer County, New York. He is represented by established galleries on the Northeast coast and has shown at Drexel University’s Academy of Natural Sciences. He is also the author and illustrator of four books published by Greenwich Workshop Press, CT.

BoP Reading Room re opened this year as an education space offering programs in art, film and writing. Because of its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, beaches, salt and fresh water ponds, it also focuses on ocean conservation awareness.
