"For the Birds", a solo art exhibit of Bird Studies, by South 
Strafford artist, Anne Aversa, will be at the Latham Library in 
Thetford Hill, VT from Saturday, February 4, 2006  through Friday, 
February 24, 2006. All are welcome to the opening on Saturday, 
February 4 from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be 
provided. The library is located just off  Route 113 on the green in 
Thetford Hill, VT and it is open M: 2-8:30, T,Th: 2-5, W, F:10-5 and Sat. 10-1.

Anne, a resident of South Strafford, VT, taught art for 29 years in 
the public school system. She has lived in VT since moving here from 
Boston in 1969. Birds, especially raptors: the softness of feather 
and eye coupled with the fierceness of beak and talon, provide models 
for exploration.  Art has many meanings. Anne strongly believes, 
however, that it is primarily an experience for the observer. The 
artist's role is merely a vessel through which the experience flows.

Her interests also include philosophy, science, literature, music, 
gardening, and the "wonders all around us". Currently she is a field 
volunteer with VINS' Breeding Bird Atlas and the Vermont Butterfly Survey.
