‘Back Yard Hens’ at Jean Kigel Studio

“Broody,” by Jean Kigel.

From Aug. 21 to Sept. 4, Jean Kigel Studio returns with Kigel’s bird series, this time with oil paintings of backyard hens.

These paintings weigh in on the current impulse to provide for oneself as much as possible, by raising backyard hens for meat and eggs.

Having grown up on a poultry farm, Kigel found watching hens to be a Zen experience. Her paintings capture the nuances of hens as they posture, peck, and strut. These small oils convey the broodiness, compassion, perplexity, and majesty that hens are capable of.

Discover this show both online at www.jeankigel.com and in person, by appointment, at 1396 Back Cove Road in Waldoboro.  Masks and social distancing are required. For more information, email jean@jeankigel.com, or call 832-5152.
