Student Artists Transcend the Times to Capture the Beauty of Birds

They are, virtually, Best of Show. Don’t wait another minute to mosey through the galleries on display during the 2021 Audubon Society of Omaha Student Art Show at Posted April 5, the more than 300 entries have amazed and delighted site visitors and judges, who awarded more than 200 prizes for Excellence and Merit. The Art Show has proved so popular that ASO has extended its gallery dates through August 31, 2021.

Special thanks to the Art Show committee: Jackie Scholar, Grace Gaard, Lauren Robinson and Heidi Walz, and our website partners at Firespring for their patient guidance while we built the galleries. Thanks, too, to our judges, Anne Maguire, Jaye Welch, Kit Murrin, Grace Gaard, Jackie Scholar, Jason St. Sauver, and Marlene McCann. Of course, thanks to our Audubon members whose support makes this areawide student event possible.

Most of all, thanks to the students, teachers and parents who made the art happen and then uploaded it. It was an extra step, and we couldn’t have done it without you. Teachers and parents also picked up prizes at our new office, following Audubon health and safety measures. Due to these precautions, we were not able to visit with many of our favorite teachers and schools this year; we hope they will enter again next year. And we especially missed seeing YOU — students with their families and friends, live and in-person.
