ArtEAST hosts open call for art in new exhibit

March 4, 2014

By Staff

ArtEAST has put out an open call for art in its new exhibit “Crow/Raven: Magic & Mystery.”

Wanted are 2-D and 3-D works pertaining to the theme, with crows and ravens being a source of artistic inspiration, scientific inquiry and fascination.

Accepted artwork is eligible for a $250 curator’s choice award. The show will be curated by Greg Bartol.

Artists are encouraged to capture the essence of crow/raven, whether inspired by the traits that humans find strangely familiar (language, delinquency, frolic, passion, wrath, risk-taking and awareness), or by the books of authors also fascinated by these intelligent black birds, including: John Marzluff, Tony Angell, Layne Maheu, Lyanda Lynn Haupt, Boria Sax, Tim Birkhead, Candace Savage, Genora Powell, Jon Young, Lawrence Kilham, Bernd Heinrich and Thor Hanson.

The submission deadline is midnight March 15.

The exhibit kicks off with an opening reception from 6-8 p.m. May 30 and runs through July 12. Bartol and artEAST are proposing additional events that will take place from mid May through July throughout Issaquah.
