A different approach to seeing the familiar is taken by Rosalie Winard. She explains, “Landscapes here are soulful, vast and at times utterly serene. The birds on the lake come here in such great numbers that they become an element of the landscape.” The patterns and stillness of the birds and the reflection of light and dark on the water have influenced her work. This installation includes still images on chiffon to accentuate the ephemeral quality of birds and landscape. She also has a video installation that shows the grace and clumsiness of pelicans. It is her documentation of a time she helped band pelican chicks on Gunnison. The title of the exhibition, “Birds Don’t Pay Taxes” comes from a documentary Winard watched about a conflict between conservationists fighting to save sage grouse habitat on public lands and ranchers whose cattle grazed there. An angry rancher held up a placard with that statement on it.
