Celebrate the opening night from the safety of your home on Facebook LIVE. Special guest Fidencio Fifield Perez joins us to discuss his current exhibition at Salina Art Center. Michael Freeland has created a great short video to highlight the exhibition and Fidencio will be available to answer questions from the audience.

Virtual opening night is sponsored in part by Blue Skye Brewery & Eats in beautiful downtown Salina. Order a wood-fired pizza to enjoy during the opening. Salina Art Center members receive up to 50% off when they order the Fidencio Special (Jalapeno & Pineapple Pizza) and show their opening night invitation. (don't like the Fidencio? Order any wood-fired pizza and/or and a growler of craft beer for 25% off) Blue Skye is donating proceeds to the Art Center to support art and culture in our community. (Thank you, Blue Skye)

We have just a few limited edition exhibition guides left. We limited to printing to only 50 guides and the guide contains the full exhibition essay by Ruslana Lichtzier which provocatively accompanies images from Birdwatchers. You can order yours at www.cognitoforms.com/SalinaArtCenter/limitededitionbirdwatchersexhibitionguide

You can see Birdwatchers in person at 242 S. Santa Fe in Salina. Gallery admission is always free, donations are welcome. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Sunday 11-5.

Funding for Birdwatchers and the artist residency program is provided through the annual Art Center Gala, a fundraising event by the Salina Art Center Endowment Foundation. Special funding for this project was provided in part by the Greater Salina Community Foundation, YW Legacy Fund and Horizons Grants Program of Salina Arts and Humanities Foundation. Horizons is a private donor group.

Excited to check out the exhibition tomorrow night? We are too! One piece of artwork that will be highlighted during this event is "Surge." "Surge" is 8x35 ft and the physical act of installation is laborious and tedious, requiring the artist to use hundreds of small red push pins. Find out more about this piece and what it represents tomorrow night at 6pm on Facebook Live. We hope to see you there!
