An exhibit of 31 photographs by Tina Grant are currently on display in the Gifford Medical Center art gallery. Most are stunning close-ups of birds—cardinals, humming birds, bald eagles, tufted titmouses, and owls—that she has observed near her home in East Roxbury Vermont.
Grant lived on a farm as a child and spent summers on Lake Winnipesaukee’s Mink Island, where she spent hours observing (and later photographing) the wildlife around her. When she grew up and had a home of her own, she put up birdfeeders and started watching and photographing birds.
Now Grant keeps her camera by her side, always ready to capture the many beautiful shots she sees outside her window, at her feeder, or in her travels.
“My friends have started calling me the Bird Whisperer—I tell them that you to need look up,” said Grant. “I am blessed to be able to see and photograph the many birds and animals I see. This exhibit is a way to share these blessings with everyone.”
This exhibit is free and open to the public, and will be displayed through February 10, 2016. The gallery is located just inside the hospital’s main entrance at 44 S, Main St. (Route 12) in Randolph. Call Gifford at (802) 728-7000 for more information
