Inspiration came naturally to Dott Schneider for her latest exhibit, Nervous Bird, opening today at 1300 Gallery. "I was walking through the park and noticed this very old, very skinny lady feeding pigeons," she says. "She had the same sort of nervous gestures as them. It just sort of grew from there." Of course, if you dig deeper, you'll find something decidedly less avian and more political scattered among the dozen-plus pieces. "I feel like [a nervous bird] with our government," says Schneider. Nervous Bird combines paintings, illustrations, and a site-specific installation. "It exposes the rawness of human-animal psychology. Besides, I really like drawing birds."
Mondays-Fridays, 12-4 p.m. Starts: Feb. 17. Continues through March 5
