“Whether in the Delta on a cold winter morning or sweltering in the humidity of a tropical rainforest, nothing is better than being in the field watching birds. That is the real inspiration for my work” ~ David Tomb

Since January 2016, David has held a Creative Ecology residency at the Palo Alto Art Center. The first phase consisted of in-the-field sessions with community members who accompanied David on bird walks in the Palo Alto Baylands and sketched bird mounts and learned about the King Tides. In February and March the residency moved into the studio, where David shared with the public the creative process as he created colorful dioramas of birds, grasses, and marsh with a diverse range of materials. Now this residency culminates with this exhibition. Come join us!   Learn More
