For the ninth year in a row, Airlie is excited to host our Annual Art Exhibit, July – December 2021! We invited artists, or teams of artists, to decorate, paint or otherwise adorn one of 10 oversized 4 foot tall, fiberglass owl models. These owls will be placed throughout the grounds for guests to enjoy as part of their garden experience. Artist designs were selected based on creativity, craftsmanship, use of materials, the ability to appeal to all age groups, outdoor sustainability, and durability.
We had the biggest turnout yet for artist submissions, totaling over 70 designs! After much deliberation, ten, talented artists were selected for our 2021 Art Exhibit, It’s Owl Good. They are in the process of bringing their designs to life and we will be documenting their progress along the way! Congratulations to our 2021 Artists:
