Angst Gallery invites you to submit art for Family Corvidae, a celebration of nutcrackers, jackdaws, ravens, crows, jays, magpies, ground jays and and treepies which will be displayed May 4-26.
Each artist can submit up to three pieces for a submission fee of five dollars per artist. Artwork can only be delivered during the two drop off days specified below. Angst Gallery reserves the right to disqualify any artwork that does not fit into the theme of corvidae or that is not ready for hanging.
Unsold artworks can be picked up from two until eight pm on Tuesday, May 29 and Thursday, May 31 between 3 and 8.
Family Corvidae is being presented in conjunction with “Escape From Audubon,” presented by our neighbors at Art at the Cave (108 EAST EVERGREEN BOULEVARD, VANCOUVER, WA, 98660) and featuring art by Cynthia Heise, Anne John, William Park, Kathi Rick, and Michael Smith. According to Cave co-founder Anne John, “their show is based on the little- known fact that the Audubon Society is named after a prolific artist who prolifically killed his subject matter in order to paint them. As a bird lover, the dichotomy is striking. Our intention is not to invite the disapproval of the Audubon Society, which does wonderful work saving and protecting avian creatures. However, as artists, we just can’t help ourselves sometimes.”
