Denise Bibro Fine Art presents Christopher Reiger: Some Species of Song, on view in our Platform project space October 8 through November 7, 2009. Reiger’s muses are ecology, natural history, philosophy, and theology. His elegant and exquisitely executed mixed media paintings and drawings explore the interconnectedness and interdependency of human, plant, and animal life. The artist notes that “Every creature’s song is at once insignificant and grand.” In the case of this exhibition, the artwork sings a melody woven by the delicate balance of our life on earth.

Prior to Some Species of Song, Reiger mounted a solo show at AG Gallery, Brooklyn, NY. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Denise Bibro Fine Art, Jeff Bailey Gallery, Dieu Donné, Archibald Arts, Winkleman Gallery, AHL Foundation, Visual Arts Gallery, and Mushroom Arts, all in New York City; NURTUREart and Plus Ultra Gallery, in Brooklyn, NY; Cerasoli Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; Rocket Projects Gallery, Miami, FL; Digging Pitt Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA; Exit and SPACES, in Cleveland, OH; and Biblioteca Nacional de la Republica Argentina in Buenos Aires. He holds an M.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts and a B.A. in studio art from the College of William & Mary.

A portion of sales proceeds from the exhibition will benefit The Wildlands Network, whose mission is to ensure a healthy future for nature and people in North America by scientifically and strategically connecting networks of people protecting networks of wildlands. To learn more visit
