In conjunction with the Arsenal Gallery exhbiition "Conserving Our City of Nature:The Artwork of Alan Messer", NYC Audubon will host a lecture about their educational and conservation initiatives. NYC Audubon has worked for over 30 years to protect wild birds and their habitat in the five boroughs, through public outreach and advocacy, educational programming, and scientific research.

Many New Yorkers are unaware of the 350 species of wild birds—almost a third of all bird species in North America—that live in or pass through New York City each year. Artist Alan Messer skillfully captures many, from exquisite migrating Blackburnian Warblers in Central Park’s ramble to a Northern Harrier scanning the vast marshes of Jamaica Bay.

"Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer" presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.

Please note: Admission is free but space is limited. To RSVP, email artandantiquities@parks.nyc.gov.

Join us for a DIY print and stamp workshop with the Art Students League’s Sonomi Kobayashi. Using overlooked, everyday objects such as wine corks, paper clips, buttons, rubber bands, foot care cushions (bunion and corn cushions), and bottle caps you will create print blocks and stamps to make multilayered prints and patterns that can be used to enhance journal covers, stationery, fabrics, accessories, and anything else you can think of.

Sonomi Kobayashi is a New York based artist, from Japan. She studied painting, sculpture and printmaking at the Art Students League of New York from which she received a studio certificate in painting. She now works out of her studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York and exhibits frequently in the United States, Japan, and Europe. She received the Will Barnet Grant in Printmaking in 2013, and has done residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, VT, Vytlacil Campas, Sparkill, NY, and Cat'Art Contemporary Art Centre, Sainte Colombe, France. Her work expresses the relationships between humanity, nature, earth and the universe. Viewers often find universality in her paintings which depict the shapes and symbols found in nature.

Many New Yorkers are unaware of the 350 species of wild birds—almost a third of all bird species in North America—that live in or pass through New York City each year. Artist Alan Messer skillfully captures many, from exquisite migrating Blackburnian Warblers in Central Park’s ramble to a Northern Harrier scanning the vast marshes of Jamaica Bay. Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.

Alan Messer has taught birding ID and nature drawing classes at The New York Historical Society, and The New York City Audubon Society. His works have been shown at the Cape May Bird Observatory, the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, at Ellis Island, and The Lincoln Center in New York NY. He has illustrated for books, magazines, and field guides, and is a regular contributor to Bird Watcher's Digest. Messer is a former President of The Linnaean Society of New York.

Admission is free but space is limited.

Classes will employ similar modalities of movement like yoga, Pilates and aerobic exercise. Guest classes on Reiki, stress management, tai chi and other subjects will provide an enhanced, comprehensive experience for all participants.
