Murder On St. Vrain Creek In Exhibition
The Crow Show 2017 opens today at the Studio Door in San Diego, California. My image titled Murder on St. Vrain Creek is appearing in the online version of the exhibition. The image was made this past December while I walked along the St. Vrain Creek in Longmont, Colorado.
The image shows a group of crows, called a murder, as they swarm over the frozen St. Vrain. The creek meanders through a semi-urban landscape. The image is punctuated by the angular conveyor shaft of an industrial site. The Murder on St. Vrain Creek juxtaposes the beauty of flying crows and the coldness of the industrial setting. Crows are truly adaptable birds.
The Crow Show 2017 features an online exhibition in addition to a studio show. You can examine the online show here. With only a handful of photographs included I am very pleased to have my image included in The Crow Show.
The Crow Show 2017 Catalog is also ready for viewing online and for printing.
Congratulations to all the artists with selected work in The Crow Show 2017. Special thinks to Patric Stillman, of the Studio Door, and the exhibition juror Kathy Kelsey Foley, Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum Director in Wisconsin.
The in-gallery version of The Crow Show runs from February 3-26, 2017.
