Work by the three artists in Galerie Hertz’s new show, “Bird Brains,” deals with both of those subjects often in provocative ways.
Kristina Arnold, who explores public health issues and often creates installations, has made collage and assemblage art for this show. Louisville artist Alicia Criswell, who works as an arts therapist, has created works inspired by her work with Alzheimer’s patients. And Florida-based artist Art Orr has transformed his fascination with wildlife into what he calls Birdbrain houses that reflect the character of the Gulf Coast. He weaves with found objects, such as beach shells and labels from old 45 rpm records, and there are feathers there as well.
An opening reception is from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the gallery, 1253 S. Preston St. The exhibit runs through Sept. 21.
