Watershed Gallery

The Watershed Gallery showcases the beauty and diversity of life in the Mississippi River watershed as seen through the artist’s lens. Through photographic images, paintings, watercolors or other creative media, artists capture a unique perspective on the natural world, reminding us of the interconnectedness of all life in the watershed.

The National Eagle Center hosts opening reception events that offer members of the community a chance to meet the featured artist and provide the first public viewing of the exhibit in the Watershed Gallery. The receptions are held on a weekday evening during the months of January, May and September.

Currently On Exhibit

Animal Totem: Exploring the Human-Animal Connection
The Art of Foxfeather R. Zenkova
September 2018 – January 2019

Art itself can be a bridge to spark an interest in nature, and nature inspires art. These two things work together synergistically and help to provide a new and different way to look at our place in the animal kingdom, and expanding our awareness of the natural world.

The art of Foxfeather R. Zenkova showcases a variety of this nature and culture-inspired work, featuring tribal-style drums, theatrical masks, original paintings, totemic jewelry, and more.

About the Artist: Foxfeather R. Zenkova

Foxfeather has an enduring love of all things feathered, furred, and scaled. She feels a particularly strong connection to foxes, birds of all kinds (particularly corvids, owls, lammergeiers, and parrots), and jaguars. Animals are a huge part of her life; she hopes to help share this connection through her artwork. Many years working in wildlife rehabilitation, exotic animal care, and environmental education have deepened her respect and awe for the natural world to something she is passionate about devoting her life to.

She attended the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, studying both Studio Arts and American Indian studies. She is fully self-employed as a freelance artist. She shares her home and dreams with her wonderful husband, Roman, and their small menagerie of critters. Outside of her art and the farm, she is exploring a new venture in falconry, playing the banjo, practicing aikido, scuba diving, animal training/psychology, traveling, and voraciously devouring books as an avid reader.
