Connecticut Audubon Society’s fifth annual Birds and Their Habitat art exhibit features Riverside painter Teek Eaton-Koch in celebration of the beauty of birds and their importance to conservation in Connecticut.

Birds and Their Habitat opens on Friday, Sept. 26, with a reception and viewing, and continues Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Center at Fairfield, 2325 Burr Street.

Timothy Edward Eaton-Koch — better known as “Teek” is a freelance illustrator, architectural renderer and fine artist who has his studio based in Riverside.

His architectural renderings have earned him recognition by the American Society of Architectural Illustrators for his observational work of Grand Central Terminal.

Mr. Eaton-Koch ’s fine artwork has been featured group exhibitions in the Fernando Luis Alvarez Gallery in Stamford, Beechwood Arts Salon Series in Westport and at the Spring Bull Gallery & Studio in Newport, R.I. Original artwork and prints are also available for sale at Images Gallery in Old Greenwich.

Professionally, Mr. Eaton-Kock works with architects, branding, creative and real estate interests to develop formal renderings and presentation materials for developments and residences. A portfolio of Mr. Eaton-Koch’s work can be viewed online at Teekartworks.com.

“Throughout history, the dreams and aspirations of mankind have been allegorically portrayed by one creature above all others – the bird,” said Nelson North, director of Fairfield operations for Connecticut Audubon Society. “The art of depicting birds has become a living history as rich in its past as in its promise of a continuing future. Today a growing desire to meaningfully connect with the natural world has fostered a revival of interest in birds. That’s why Connecticut Audubon Society — whose mission is to conserve Connecticut’s environment through science-based education and advocacy focused on the state’s birds and habitats — is bringing together talented artists who specialize in avian art and the beauty of nature during its fifth annual Birds and Their Habitat juried artists’ exhibition and sale.”
