“Field Notes | Walter Matia” at the National Sporting Library & Museum: Through Jan. 9

It’s your last chance to see this indoor/outdoor bronze sculpture exhibition by contemporary artist Walter Matia. His study of biology, early work as a taxidermist, successful career as a conservationist, and life-long drive to observe nature as a hunter-naturalist, inform his sculptures of wild and domesticated animals and bring them to life.

Seven large-scale works of wild turkeys, a pointer, a peregrine falcon, mourning doves, blue-winged teal ducks, whooping cranes, and a great blue heron greet visitors throughout the NSLM’s grounds. Two interior galleries feature sculptures, bas reliefs, and a fire screen depicting a variety of sporting dogs and hounds, bison, and wild- and waterfowl. Several of the works in the exhibition serve as a reminder of threatened species in need of protection.

The campus is free and open to the public. Find more information on visitation and museum tickets at nationalsporting.org.
