Call for Artists: “Birds and Bees, and Their Houses”


Although we are amid this cold wintery season, it is not too early to be thinking about Spring. To usher in this delightful season, The RiverArts Galleries will be hosting an eclectic and unique show, Birds and Bees, and their Houses in March.

We invite you to exhibit your creative works that exemplify the birds, bees, and their houses.  Two and three-dimensional bird themed art, functional or non-functional bird houses, wild and whimsical, mixed media, will all be welcomed. Let your creativity run wild!

Artists are encouraged to submit works made from, but not limited to, wood, metal, natural materials, glass, tile, clay, or fiber. Combinations of materials are encouraged.

Bird –  themed two-dimensional paintings, drawings, etchings, fiber art, etc., are also welcomed.  This show will not include photography or water fowl, however.

The Birds and Bees, and Their Houses will be curated by RiverArts members Rob Glebe, accomplished Chestertown metal artist, and Laura Ventura, active potter at the RiverArts Clay Studio.
