September 12, 2020
“Patient Nature,” a juried group exhibit and the “2019-2020 Traveling Audubon Photography Awards Exhibit” from the Audubon Society will open in conjunction with the 4th Annual Monarch Butterfly Festival in Bemidji on September 12, 2020.
“Patient Nature” is a group exhibit created in memory of area artist and photographer Joyce Kleven (2019).
Photographers were asked to submit work depicting birdlife in any form to the categories of Professional, Amateur, Youth or a special fourth category “Birds, Bees & Butterflies – Bemidji” reserved for images of native pollinators interacting with native plants.
Audubon’s Traveling Exhibit is in its 10th year of the contest. Winning photos and honorable mentions were selected from 2,253 entrants from all 50 states, Washington D.C. and 10 Canadian provinces and territories to appreciate the wonder of birds and the places they inhabit. The “Plants for Birds” division highlights the importance of native plants that provide natural green spaces for birds and the insects they feed on.
“Patient Nature” is sponsored by Business Partner – Paul Bunyan Communications. The “2019 – 2020 Traveling Audubon Photography Awards Exhibit” is made possible by the Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society.
