Greenwich isn’t the only place that recognizes the talent of Bruce Museum employee Sean Murtha — the exhibition preparator was recently honored as Connecticut Audubon Society 2013 “Artist of the Year.”

Mr. Murtha, who is an award-winning master wildlife painter, was recognized for his expert realism in painting the birds and landscapes of the Long Island Sound.

A dozen of his oils and watercolors were on display at the Connecticut Audubon Society’s annual bird art show, Birds in their Habitat, which took place in Fairfield in late September, along with artworks by 20 other artists in various media.

At the Bruce Museum, Mr. Murtha is an integral part of the team that designs and installs exhibitions.
