Her first solo show in ten years, Anita Diebel and Rockport Center of the Arts present Wing Songs. About the exhibition, Diebel remarked it is "a celebration of the avian wonders that abound in my world. As a painter, I explore the versatility of aqua-media in traditional and contemporary genres, adding some collage and mixed media. I am a naturalist at heart and it was exciting to do a 'theme show' while at the same time a challenge to keep it interesting and innovative."
