A New Gallery Birds Just Created

The Bird Artwork Gallery is a set of 14 bird photographs taken on the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva. Each stunning photo exhibits the fine detail and high quality that are the hallmark of Philip Bracco’s work. Like the works in the other galleries (Life on the Stoop, Native American Indians, Photography, Wildlife and Country) each picture can be purchased as a print or a greeting card. A print can be framed, prepared on canvas that is either stretched over a frame or rolled in a tube, or as a poster. Prints can be prepared in a variety of sizes, frames, mats, papers and finishes. The Bracco Galleries are a stunning mix of nostalgic fine art from the 1940’s and contemporary pieces.
