The Gregory James Gallery in New Milford is presenting an exhibit, “Transcendent Landscapes,” through June 18.

The show features works by James Coe, of Hudson Valley, N.Y.

The artist graduated with a degree in biology from Harvard University and intended to become an ornithologist, before going on to attend Parsons School of Design in New York as a graduate student, where he studied figural and still life art.

After earning a master’s degree, the training in biology and art combined to yield a focus on the art of field guide illustration.

Coe’s resume includes contributions to the “Easy Bird Guide: West” and “Birds of New Guinea,” and to Frank Gill’s classic college textbook, “Ornithology.”

In the illustration arena, he may be best known as the author and illustrator of the acclaimed “Golden Field Guide Eastern Birds,” published in 1994 and reissued in 2001 by St. Martin’s Press.

The exhibit is Coe’s first individual show at the Gregory James Gallery since 2012.

The show may be seen at the 93 Park Lane Road (Route 202) gallery.
