Three Masters exhibit opens in Old Forge


OLD FORGE — View Arts Center will host an opening reception for its newest exhibition, “All Creatures Great and Small: Three Masters Three Mediums,” from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30.

The exhibition features Allen Blagden, Al Jordan and Larry Master.

Jordan is a masterful sculptor and Master Falconer renowned for creating all orders of birds in his lifelike sculptures.

Hawks, owls, shorebirds, and songbirds have all been subjects of his highly sought after pieces.

Master is a conservation biologist, a zoologist, and a conservation photographer who has been photographing wildlife and natural history subjects for more than 60 years.

He spent 20 years with The Nature Conservancy and six years with NatureServe, mostly as their chief zoologist.
