Small Works - Big Impressions
The Wildlife Experience in Parker, Colorado
November 17, 2007 – January 1, 2008

The Society of Animal Artists returns to The Wildlife Experience along with a premier event: the First Annual Society of Animal Artists' Small Works Exhibition and Sale, entitled Small Works, Big Impressions. The Wildlife Experience has hosted the SAA's prestigious annual touring exhibition, Art and the Animal, on several occasions since opening in 2002. This year, we will be hosting the new Society of Animal Artists Small Works Exhibition and Sale during the holiday season. This show gives visitors and collectors alike to view and purchase works of art from members of the Society of Animal Artists. The quality will be comparable to that displayed in the Art and the Animal exhibition, yet all works will be on a much smaller scale. Seasoned collectors and new collectors alike will have the opportunity to purchase works by their favorite artists at reasonable prices. A substantial percentage of the proceeds from this sale will benefit the work and missions of The Wildlife Experience and the Society of Animal Artists.

Joe Kazimierczyk has 3 paintings juried into the show "The Road Not Taken", organized by the D&R Greenway Land Trust. The show runs Oct 15, 2007 through Jan 11, 2008. Opening reception is Thursday, Nov 8, 2007 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

Works will be exhibited in the Marie L. Matthews Gallery at the Johnson Education Center, located at One Preservation Place, off Rosedale Road in Princeton. Chosen works will highlight pathways into nature, especially trails and landscapes that are either preserved or not yet “taken” by development - a subject Joe paints often. The scene pictured here was done at Otto's Farm Park in Hillsborough Twp, NJ.

35% of all sales go to support the D&R Greenway’s land preservation mission.
