The Vermont Institute of Natural Science (VINS) is proud to present local artist Jeanette Fournier and her exhibition of bird-focused artwork. Fournier's watercolor pieces will be on display at VINS Nature Center now through March 31.

A self-taught painter from Bethlehem, NH, Fournier's artwork hangs in private collections nationwide, and has been exhibited in prestigious art exhibitions in New England. She employs her unusual realistic style of watercolor painting to capture the up-close details of nature and wildlife, observed during her years of living in northern New Hampshire and Vermont. Her subject matter includes mammals, songbirds, and owls, many of which were painted using resident owls at VINS as subjects. More of Jeanette's work can be seen on her website,

During Fournier's art show at VINS, a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of her artwork will go to VINS to support its mission of environmental education, conservation, and avian rehabilitation.
