4th Annual Crow Show
By The Studio Door

U.S. National Deadline: January 5, 2018 – THE CROW SHOW 2018 is the fourth annual exhibition of visual art running from February 2 – 25, 2018 produced by The Studio Door.

Having taken on mythological importance, Crows appear in all parts of the world. In folklore, they may foreshadow tragedy or usher in good news. The reality is a highly intelligent bird capable of social interactions. In recent years, the crow has become a muse to many artists. This is annual exhibition seeks to represent the many faces of the Crow in reality and fantasy. Show us what the Crow means to you [Creative interpretations of all black birds, ravens and other Corvus species are acceptable].

The juror will select works that will be on display at The Studio Door gallery in San Diego. These works may also be on display in on-line gallery. Additionally, the juror will select additional works that will be shown only in the on-line gallery. This allows for more works to be seen beyond the physical limitation of the gallery.

Fine Art: Painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, artist book, ceramics, stoneware, stain glass and sculpture.  Oversized jewelry that can be defined as fine art is acceptable for this show.

This exhibition does not accept small jewelry, video, film, performance art, installation and works requiring an external electrical source.

Submissions must be the artist’s original work.


Best in Show
A Juror’s Award certificate will be presented to three works that express the most imaginative interpretation of the theme. One work will be designated “Best in Show” and will be used as the cover of the exhibition catalog.  Exhibition catalogs will be available online print-on-demand.

Gallery & Online Gallery
There are two opportunities to get into this show. The juror will select works that will be exhibited at The Studio Door gallery in San Diego. Additionally, the juror will select works that will be shown in the on-line gallery only. This allows for more works to be seen beyond the limitations of the main gallery. You have the option to declare “in gallery”, “on-line gallery” or both during the application process. All accepted works regardless of “in gallery” or “online gallery” are eligible for Best in Show.
