The Wildlife Experience Presents
Nature of the Beast
Works by John Banovich
May 22 – July 25, 2010
The Wildlife Experience adds to its summer exhibition line-up with Nature of the Beast: Works by John Banovich, an exclusive one-man show presented only at The Wildlife Experience. This exhibition consists solely of museum and private collection oil paintings by this internationally renowned artist.
"There is an ancient mystery in the eyes of the beast.
Looking deep within, we come face to face with ourselves.
For they are the windows to our past, and the prophecy of our future."
John Banovich is an internationally recognized artist best known for his depiction of exotic species from across the globe. With acrylics and oils, Banovich creates memorable scenes from the dramas that play themselves out daily in the natural world, just as they have for millions of years. This limited engagement, one-man exhibition, features 30 major paintings that are a tribute to the wildlife and natural places Banovich depicts so beautifully in his art.
As an award winning artist, Banovich hopes his art will inspire us to protect our wildlife and ensure its survival; his work perfectly complements the mission of The Wildlife Experience. He is on the board of the Society of Animal Artists, and the Board of Craighead Environmental Research Institute, a featured judge for The Artist's Magazine and is Master Artist - teaching workshops internationally. His life and work have been featured in countless international publications, including Africa Geographic, Wildlife Art, Big Sky Journal, Western Art & Architecture, the Artist's Magazine, and many others, as well as on various television programs aired on the Outdoor Channel, Entertainment Tonight, Versus and PBS.
