Artist Kay Jackson's Endangered Species at NSLM

MIDDLEBURG, VA. The National Sporting Library and Museum is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition, Endangered Species, by the contemporary Washington, D.C., artist Kay Jackson, is comprised of over twenty contemplative gold-leaf panel paintings and boxes.

Jackson’s work is strongly influenced by Byzantine and late-Medieval motifs. Many of the pieces present a detailed relief of an endangered land, avian, or aquatic animal - among them the Grevy's zebra, Fijian banded iguana, whooping crane, and crayfish - contrasted against delicate and intricate backgrounds. A master of water gilding techniques, Jackson also designs each frame as an extension of the composition. These evocative works exalt the beauty of each species and underscore the need for continued wildlife conversation efforts.
