Feather Art Auction

Online Event - October 11 - 18, 2014


How would you like to own an original masterpiece, and support parrot conservation at the same time?

Join us on October 11 for the launch of our latest online art auction, when you’ll have a chance to bid on one of many of his unique feather art shadow boxes or prints.

Artist Chris Maynard of Featherfolio combines his scientific knowledge, artistic sense, and love of feathers into a stunning art form. Skillfully crafted from naturally-molted parrot feathers, these remarkable pieces need to be seen to be believed!

A portion of the proceeds from this auction will support conservation efforts currently underway in Bolivia to protect and restore populations of the Critically Endangered Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis). With fewer than 150 remaining in the wild, the future remains uncertain for this beautiful bird.

Don’t miss your chance to own an unique piece of feather art! Go online to view items up for auction, and register to be notified when the auction begins.
