Eagle and Osprey Panels
October 5, 2016


Patriots of the Sky

There’s a nesting pair of bald eagles in Southern New Jersey. Ask him where and James won’t tell you. It’s top secret.

Eagles mate for life and breed earlier in the year than most other raptors. In the early spring, Fiorentino joined Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey to observe our national bird first-hand. He later returned with the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife on a bird banding mission. He shares, “When I held the newborn chicks in my hand, they were so small and still downy, and yet their power was already amazing!”

“With 161 pairs of bald eagles this past year — up from just a single nest in the early 1980’s — the dramatic ongoing recovery of bald eagles across the northeast continues to inspire so many of us,” says David Wheeler, Conserve Wildlife Foundation Executive Director. “The thrill of seeing a bald eagle fly across the sky is unparalleled.”

The Majestic Birds of Barnegat Bay

The wind whips through his hair as James Fiorentino glides through the brackish waters of Barnegat Bay. He is accompanying biologist Ben Wurst of Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey (CWF) on a hands-on hawk banding mission. Osprey, also called the fish eagle or sea hawk, have built 15 to 20 nests on specially erected platforms in the bay.

Arriving at a platform, James climbs to the top to see a nest up close. The sheer size of the nest is impressive. James gets the chance to band five young osprey, personally experiencing the work of CWF. Handling the birds, Fiorentino is struck by their majesty.

Bird banding is the attachment of small, individually numbered tags that enable tracking. This allows wildlife biologists to learn about the birds’ habits, locations and the health of the population. In 2015, a total of 534 active nests were documented, more than any other year in the osprey project’s history.

Thanks to professionals and volunteers alike, New Jersey has a robust and growing osprey population.



"Perfection" David Wells Perfect 33 Foundation
July 25, 2016

David Wells and his 33 Perfect Foundation commissioned James to create an original painting celebrating the three Perfect Games thrown in Yankees History. The original will be auctioned off or sold through David's foundation and limited edition giclees were made that have been autographed by all three Yankee legends David Wells, David Cone and Don Larson (with perfect game inscriptions). James had the opportunity to spend some time with each player at the signing. For more information the availability and prices of the artworks please contact Visionary Art Inc through the website or email jamesart5@comcast.net.



AFC's Annual Exhibit
July 25, 2016

James's artwork of an "Eastern Box Turtle" (also part of the traveling exhibition of NJ Endangered-Threatned Species with Conserve Wildlife NJ) was chosen to part of the prestigious Artists for Conservations Annual art exhibit. This year the artwork will be featured at the Grouse Mountain Resort in Vancouver BC , Canada from September 29-October 2, 2016.
Artists for Conservation's annual exhibit is the world's top conservation-themed art show and has become one of the most highly anticipated annual events among the nature-inspired art genres. The goal of the exhibit is: 1) To support conservation through art sales and education; 2) To showcase the extraordinary pool of artistic talent within AFC; and 3) To share the nature-inspired art genre with new audiences.
Unique to the exhibit, each artwork is dedicated to a conservation organization of the artists choice, with at least 40% of the proceeds from the sale of each painting support conservation initiatives around the world, including AFC's art and environmental education programs. AFC delivers this programming directly through partner venues and offers its youth-oriented art and environmental education programmin as a value-add component to its tour venues. Since 2011, AFC's annual exhibit has premiered every fall at Grouse Mountain Resort in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The exhibit is the centrepeice of AFC's annual marquee event - the Artists for Conservation Festival. Prior to 2011, the exhibit was hosted at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, NJ, USA.
Each year since 2008, as a companion to the exhibit, AFC publishes a harcover book featuring the artworks from the year's exhibit. The annual exhibit features approximately 200 artworks selected from submissions by Signature Members of Artists for Conservation. These are featured in AFC's annual book and virtual exhibit online. Of these, approximately 1/2 are selected for display in AFC's live exhibit.
