Annual Bird Event & Documentary Debut

“..a thing with feathers”

This show, which was originally scheduled for April, has been rescheduled due to the COVID19 restrictions.

The Chessman’s annual bird-themed art show features 3-D sculpture and paintings by Robert Schlegel, clay work, art prints, and paintings by Marilyn Burkhardt, mixed media and fabric art by Cheri Aldrich and fire paintings by Cynthia Longhat-Adams. Spring will come alive in the gallery with this diverse and texture filled display of bird-themed artwork.

Because of COVID concerns, we will not be hosting an in-person reception. Instead, we will be posting artist videos throughout the week on the LCCC’s Facebook Page ( will be taking this “reception” LIVE on Facebook! Fix yourself some cheese and crackers, and tune in at 5 pm on Friday, June 12.

The exhibit will remain on display through Monday, July 6, open 9 am to 5 pm Thursday-Monday.

A Family of Corvids

Margot Voorhies Thompson interviews Frank, Jane and Ian Boyden and reveals their hidden lives as crows, jays and ravens through many reflections and stories. Ian’s artist book, Bird Spirits, which includes drypoints by Frank and music by William Bolcom, is featured in a video in which Jane plays the piano pieces. Another video features Ian feeding his likeness in bird seed to Steller’s jays.

Margot and the Boydens invite you to our corvid extravaganza. We wish we could see you in person. Here’s a link to the show:
