Mark Dedrie, an artist specialized in bird sculptures, is the first Belgian to be selected for the museum show 'Art and the Animal'. This prestigious exhibition is organized annually in the USA by the Society of Animal Artists. The exhibition has been on display in more than 50 locations over the last 50 years, including museums, zoos and art, culture and science centers. Only the best animal art is exhibited, and it is therefore a great honor for artists to be able to participate. The 58th edition will take place from 28thof July to 23th of October 2018 at the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art in Florida.
The mission of the Society of Animal Artists, founded in 1960, is to promote excellence in the portrayal of domesticated and wild animals. The works of art of the members form the new standards for excellence in the visual arts.
During the exhibition a catalog will be on sale in the museum. After the opening, the catalog will be available online on the Society of Animal Artists website.
