Blue Lion Birds: The Exhibit (Part 1)


In conjunction with a local reading group called ALLen Reads, an exhibit of my bird images will be on display at the Allen Public Library for the entire month of February. In addition to the exhibit, I am honored to be a part of a panel discussion on February 7 at 7:30 pm with two wonderful local conservationists from the Connemara Conservancy and the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. If you are in the Dallas area and wish to attend, the discussion titled, “It’s for the Birds”, – Here’s the press release for more information.  My photographs will be featured in the gallery case in the lobby as you enter the library. 

All prints at the exhibit as well as sets of exhibit greeting cards (10 per set) will be available for purchase at the Allen library’s circulation desk or by contacting me by email. (john @bluelionphotos(dot)com) You can also purchase prints by clicking on the image in these posts and then clicking the “buy” button in the upper right hand portion of your screen.

Since many of you do not live close enough to visit – I am taking this opportunity to share images from the exhibit here on the Blue Lion Blog. If you DO live close by, I hope you stop by the exhibit to take a look and support the both the Allen Library and ALLen Reads!

  1. Gorgeous photos, John. I love the "whiskers" on the owl.
    Congratulations on getting all this exposure. We bloggers might be able to say, one day, that we knew you "when"! There is certainly no doubt about your talent.

  3. I am so excited for you, John!! Terrific news, my good friend! I'd give pretty much anything to have a chance to see the display in person, unfortunately we're just too far away to make that happen at the moment. But, in the meantime, I am so happy to have a chance to share in this great news with you, and to see your images that will be featured!!
