The Kites of George Peters and Melanie Walker
On March 10th, 2012, the Museum of Outdoor Arts will open Sky on a String: The Kites of George Peters and Melanie Walker. This exhibition will feature a large array of kite works from the Airworks Studio collection. Included in the exhibition are large scale Flying Man kites, birds, figurative kites, insect kites and unique photo kites. Also included in the exhibition are a collection of miniature kites from around the world and a unique group of traditional Japanese kites gathered from travels to Japanese kite festivals.
Due to the size and kinetic nature of the kite works, the artists rarely exhibit indoors, and Sky on a String will be one of only a few opportunities to view the kites up close.
George Peters and Melanie Walker have each worked in the arts for over three decades and their combined work spans a multitude of disciplines. Drawing inspiration from cultures around the globe, the artists have participated in many international kite festivals and exhibited their works in a variety of locations - from windy beaches to airports, art galleries and museums.
