Murder of Crows – Group Show
Few creatures have captured human imagination like those belonging to the Corvidae Family. These highly intelligent and social birds are among the only animals who have been observed making and using tools, and participating in complex rituals and games, owing in part to their incredible brain to body ratio, rivaled only by great apes and whales. While most are familiar with the largest species in this group, crows and ravens, their smaller cousins, jays, rooks, jackdaws, nutcrackers, and magpies too possess the family’s unique intelligence and curiosity. Their ubiquity, being found on every continent and climate with the exception of the polar icecaps, has also given corvids a special place in our collective consciousness, playing a significant role in nearly every culture’s mythology and folklore. Artists in this show include Barry Roal Carlsen, Craig Clifford, Kelly Connole, Mary Fischer, Kelli Hoppmann, Richard Jones, Debbie Kupinsky, John S. Miller, Ryan Myers, Daniella Napolitano, Tim O’Neill, Sandra Peterson, Erica Schlueter, Allan Servoss, Diane Washa, and Jonathan Wilde.
