For WINGS juried international virtual art exhibition, artists were asked to submit their best winged or flight-capable animal artwork. We are pleased to announce that the entries were as widely varied in style and subject matter as we hoped! It is the goal of WHG to support and promote animal and wildlife artwork in a wide range of genres and styles. Artwork for this exhibition was selected by jury based on originality, technique, skill, and quality of work.

Fro the artist, Nadim Touma, "Paintings from recent years depict short moments in an animal?s imagination under metaphorical and idealistic scenes. Opening a dialogue with humankind, this visual hand-to-hand supposes debates regarding consciousness, will and intentions."
