Larry Hubbell's first solo exhibition: "Birds Watching" to open at The Elisabeth C. Miller Library
Eva in Flight - November 25, 2013.
SEATTLE, WA.- Larry Hubbell, Artist, Author, Photographer and Sculptor, is best known for his Seattle nature blog, www.unionbaywatch.blogspot.com. In 2012 Larry’s story, Life After Eddie, introduced Seattle to two young eaglets growing up in the nest built by Eddie the Eagle, who lived and died on Union Bay. Larry’s first solo exhibition: “Birds Watching” opens at The Elisabeth C. Miller Library on January 4th, 2014. The show runs through February 15th 2015.

The goal of Larry’s art is to inspire harmony between humanity and nature. His current work is focused on enabling the citizens of Seattle to know and appreciate their natural neighbors. The beauty and the struggles of our local birds -- eagles, woodpeckers, herons and owls -- show how closely our lives are intertwined with theirs. The air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink are inseparable from the fate of the natural world. Larry believes, “Knowing and sustaining nature in our neighborhood is the first step toward ensuring the future of humanity”.

"A number of years ago I began collecting ideas and thoughts about how to make our world a better place. This collection eventually became a website called Utopianworld.org. That work led me to believe in four values: Children First, Accountability, Learning to Live and Living Lightly. Over time I realized this text-based site was not having the desired impact and a more visual message was needed. Eventually I retired the site, started taking art classes and began working to improve my photography. I find birds compelling, beautiful and symbolic of our impact on the natural world. To me they represent the life forms and ecosystems that are disappearing as humanity expands. My fear is that our progeny may forever live in a diminished world of crows, concrete and mechanical devices. I hope my focus on birds reminds us of what we need to save. This lead to painting and sculpting and finally to photography to find subjects to paint. Next came sharing the photos via the blog http://www.unionbaywatch.blogspot.com/ and now an art show with paintings, photos and sculptures.
