In the summer of 2010, artist Rob Tarbell and composer Douglas Boyce met at Moulin à Nef, VCCA's facility in Auvillar, France. Their collaboration began with the mysterious singing of an Auvillarian bird they couldn't identify—birdsong in a foreign language. 

Two years later, their exploration of space and light, songs and flight, is complete. Bird-like Things in Things Like Trees—the show they conceived in that beautiful Gascon village—is opening at Les Yeux du Monde art gallery in Charlottesville, Virginia.

EXHIBITION:  Bird-like Things in Things Like Trees
OPENING RECEPTION:  Friday, July 13, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
LIVE PERFORMANCE:  7:00 pm with Harmonious Blacksmith
