Sunday, October 8th, 2023
L/A Arts, 168 Lisbon St, Lewiston 

Wildlife artist and Maine master naturalist, Michael Boardman is known for his watercolor bird portraits and nature journal sketches. He has connected his art to wildlife science through artist residencies at Acadia National Park, Hog Island Audubon Camp, and Glacier Bay National Park. In 2019 he was selected for a residency at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, flying to the coastal plain of the refuge to spend 2 weeks at the Canning River Bird Camp. There he helped in the study of migrating birds breeding on the tundra. He will share his unique experience in an extreme environment, with plenty of artwork and field sketches and stories about how the avian life of the refuge connects us all to that endangered landscape.
