My image Corvus Novem was recently selected to be part of an exhibit known as The Crow Show '16 at The Studio Door gallery in San Diego, California. The exhibit opens on February 5th and runs through the month.
Today the Studio Door published a new version of their website that featured The Crow Show '16. Visit their site online at The Studio Door. See a screenshot of The Crow Show '16 catalog cover below.
Once at The Studio Door website you can select The Crow Show '16 image and it will take you to the exhibition page. Within the exhibition page you will find an online gallery, description of the event, best of show awards, and a link to a show catalog published via ISSUU. I have include a link to the ISSUU catalog below:
The Studio Door Director, Patric Stillman, is the producer of The Crow Show '16 and has created a great venue for artists. His ability to also present exhibitions online and via a catalog is also great for artists.
Corvus Novem appears on page 53 of The Crow Show '16 catalog as well as in the online exhibition. The Crow Show '16 has an opening reception on Saturday, February 6th from 6:00 PM-9:00 PM at The Studio Door in San Diego. See exhibition details here. The image Corvus Novem depicts nine (novem) crows (corvus) atop a pine tree seeming to oversee their domain. The image uses the near perfect black of the nine crows to visually punctuate the stark white background of a foggy day. The image serves as a metaphor for how crows, and other black birds, have punctuated the human psyche in mystical and spiritual ways over time.
Thank you to Patric Stillman for his hard work. Thanks also go out to the Juror of The Crow Show, Michele Diesel. It is an honor to have Corvus Novem in The Crow Show '16: A Celebration of Black Birds.
