“Birdsong: Helen Mirkil”

“Squirrel’s Nest” by Helen Mirkil

Birdsong features the work of artist, Helen Mirkil alongside Kelly Starbuck‘s photographic works in Full Circle.

Birdsong is a continuing series of art by artist, Helen Mirkil. Birds can put a song in our hearts when there’s no song to be found. Each bird species is entirely different, and for Helen each journey into the world of birds is different too.  She never quite knows where it’s leading her. It’s not unlike the life of following and listening to the music of the Holy Spirit.

Born in 1952, Helen Mirkil is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) Certificate and MFA programs, as well as the BFA program of the University of  Pennsylvania (with studio classes at PAFA). Helen is also a poet. Her collection of poems entitled Sower on the Cliffs: poems and drawings was published in 2013 by BookArts Press. Helen’s home is in Wilmington, North Carolina. Along with a spacious studio across town, she is setting down roots, enjoying her children and grandchildren.

The exhibit opens on Friday, September 24 and continues through November 7, 2021.
