I attended the opening of  BIRDS AS ART/The Bird Photography of Arthur Morris at the American Museum of Bird Art at Mass Audubon  (963 Washington Street, Canton, MA 02021.) The exhibition, which is being sponsored by Canon USA/Explorers of Light, will run from September 29, 2013 – January 12, 2014. Open Tuesday through Sunday, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.  If you have a chance go visit and see all the wonderful photographs that Artie Morris made

He will be presenting ” A Bird Photographer’s Story” on Tuesday, October 1, 2103 from 7:00-9:00pm for Mass Audubon. This event, which will be held at the auditorium, Canton High School, 900 Washington St, Canton MA 02021, is being sponsored by Canon USA/Explorers of Light and will be free and open to the public. This illustrated lecture will feature hundreds of Morris’ spectacular images as he shares the story of his life’s journey from his childhood in Brooklyn through his 23-year teaching career in New York City to the realization of his dream of becoming a full-time professional nature photographer specializing in birds. As we travel with him to his favorite locations, he will tell us about the birds and other creatures that he photographs and about the equipment and techniques he uses to create his images. The event is being hosted by The Museum of American Bird Art at Mass Audubon.
