‘Birds of the Wilderland’ continues at PWA
Pemaquid Watershed Association continues to host the captivating art exhibit by Bath artist “kdb” Dominguez, “Birds of the Wilderland.” She is passionate about nature and uses many mediums and techniques to tell the story of the natural world.
Nature is Dominguez’s muse and molten bees wax is one of her favorite mediums, used in encaustic painting, which involves many layers of hot wax and pigments. The exhibit also includes stunning environmental art in acrylic, giclees, and photography on canvas, as well as a small, but beautiful, environmental 2018 calendar.
Dominguez is in year four of a Climate Change Project “WilderlandMaine,” which began as a one year project, documenting in art the changes seen in the
Kennebec River Watershed. Extensive studies have shown the Gulf of Maine is heating up 99.9 percent faster than any other ocean in the world. It means that the fish, living creatures and plants may also change, shift and adapt to a warmer environment. Dominguez has taken the opportunity to photograph and document how the shores of the Kennebec and the beaches look today, exploring nature, photographing and creating incredible, important and interesting art.
