Meet the Artists: Mike Childs and Gabriel Willow


Wave Hill House

Meet the current artists exhibiting in Wave Hill House: painter Mike Childs who has been a long-time art handler at Wave Hill and naturalist Gabriel Willow who regularly leads bird walks here and around the city. 100 Words, on view in the Reception Area and Cafe features Mike’s paintings based on abstracted visual signs and symbols that allude to architectural patterns. In Ecolegiac: Missing Birds of New York, Gabriel combines drawing and photography to convey five birds once found around New York City that are now extinct.

Free with admission to the grounds.
