'Hollow Bones' is a two part exhibition of art, dedicated to raising awareness of threatened bird species and their habitats in Delaware County. Paintings, drawings and prints by local Irish artist Caroline Fay will be displayed alongside selected work from bird themed community workshops held throughout the year.

Fay was the solo winner of the 2019 Decentralization Individual Artist Grant Award from The Roxbury Arts Group under the Decentralization Grant Program (DEC), a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, in Delaware County.

Fay's project, 'Art & Community For The Birds' is a year-long art & research project that aims to raise awareness and encourage the conservation of our local birds through the medium of art workshops and community building. All ages and abilities are given the opportunity to make and create in various locations including Big Little Art Studio (BLAS), East Brook Studios and the Delaware-Ostego Audubon Society - Franklin Mountain Sanctuary in Oneonta. All who attend these workshops are invited to exhibit selected pieces in the show.

Come enjoy original art in an array of mediums and join this creative campaign for conservation and education. Learn about local birds, the threats in our environment and their effects on local wildlife and the vital habitats of the natural world. Connect with other community members and discover the numerous ways that you can help protect and spread awareness of threatened birds and habitats in your local area.
