The Crow Show 2016: A Celebration Of Black Birds
This coming February (Feb 5-28) a San Diego fine art gallery and contemporary art incubator known as The Studio Door will host an international exhibition known as The Crow Show 2016. The Crow Show is described as A Celebration Of Black Birds and is the second offering of the event by The Studio Door. The 2015 show was the great idea of Patric Stillman who is the Founder/Director of The Studio Door.
The Crow Show is juried international exhibition that includes a gallery showing, an online exhibition, and a show catalog. The gallery show will be February 5-28 at The Studio Door with a concurrent online gallery.
In response to The Crow Show 2016 call 191 entries were received by the The Studio Door. Michelle Deziel, Independent Curator and Art Consultant who is the Former Curator with the Norton Simon Museum of Art in Pasadena, California served as the show juror. A final total of 57 artist/artworks were selected for inclusion in The Crow Show 2016.
Corvus Novem Selected
One of my fine art images, Corvus Novem, is one of the 57 entries selected for The Crow Show 2016. Corvus Novem was selected to be exhibited as part of the online gallery (22 total online selections).
The Corvus Novem image shows nine crows perching in a pine tree. Their black bodies contrast with a nearly blank background. This visual presentation serves as a metaphor for how crows and other mystical black birds have punctuated the human psyche over time.
The image was made on a rainy and foggy morning which provided the blank background for the image.

Opening night of The Crow Show 2016 is Saturday February 6th with a reception from 6 PM to 9 PM.
I am quite please to be included with the many talented artists with work at The Crow Show 2016.
