For over forty-five years, John Charles Pitcher has expressed his love for birds and the natural
world through his sketches an paintings. His success in capturing the sense of a place and
likeness of his subjects reveals not only his mastery of technique but also his passion and
knowledge as a naturalist. As a Distinguished Signature Member of the Society of Animal
Artists, Pitcher exhibits in museums and fine art galleries both domestic and abroad. Pitcher
has painted an explored the vastness of Alaska, canoe the wilderness waters of Canada and
sketched the migrating caribou herds of northern Labrador, but he continues to be amazed and
inspire by the diversity and beauty found in his own back yard. This exhibit will feature
sketches and works inspired by Dorset’s natural beauty.
