The National Eagle Center’s winter exhibit, “On The Brink: Uncertain Future” is now on display in the Watershed Gallery. The exhibit, which focuses on the relationship between humans and threatened wildlife, runs through April.
The art is the work of St. Paul-based artist April Schumacher, and the pieces that comprise On The Brink include watercolors, pyrography (wood burning), pencil sketch, and acrylics.
“April is a truly gifted artist,” said Anna Christenson, Watershed Gallery curator. “Her ability to capture even the smallest details draws you in and evokes an emotional connection. We’re excited to be able to share her work with our guests.”
Schumacher also has works on permanent display in the National Eagle Center’s classroom. In 2018 she was commissioned to illustrate three large images depicting an adult golden eagle, a juvenile golden eagle, and a juvenile bald eagle to help educate about golden eagle identification.
Prints of Schumacher’s work are also available for sale.
