Autumn brings the return of many thousands of waterfowl and shorebirds to the Bay Area. This fall, you’ll find many of these birds, or at least their likenesses, inside the Oakland Museum of California. An upcoming exhibit, “Wild Wings: The Waterfowl Art of Harry Curieux Adamson,” will feature 45 oil paintings by this Bay Area native, spanning Adamson’s 60-year career as a master painter and avid birder. Running from November 9 through March 30, the exhibit also includes a selection of Adamson’s early sketches and temperas. Graphics and text accompanying the artworks de-scribe waterfowl migration patterns in California and examine the nature of avian flight as revealed through the images. The exhibit features a sound environment developed from the museum’s California Library of Natural Sounds (CLNS), a comprehensive collection of regional nature sounds and a resource center for educators, researchers, artists, and the general public. For more information on the exhibit, call (510) 238-2200 or visit www.museumca.org; contact CLNS at (510) 238-7482.
