Call for Entry: The Birds and the Bees

Nave Gallery Annex

Entry Deadline: Feb. 20

53 Chester St
Somerville, MA 02144

The Nave Gallery Annex (Somerville, MA) invites artists to participate in the curated exhibition The Birds and the Bees.

The buzz of bees, the chirping of birds, vibrantly colored flowers, and green tender shoots pushing up from barren ground are dreamed of promises during these cold winter months. Rest assured, spring will come again, and with it:
The Birds and the Bees exhibition invites artists to explore and celebrate fecundity in all its guises. 2 and 3-D work as well as small mixed media installations which explore this topic literally, poetically, figuratively or metaphorically are welcome for consideration along with imagery exclusively of birds, or exclusively bees .

Brush up on bee lore, botanical illustration, nest building techniques, avian husbandry, honey hunting or ornithological sleights of hand. What might it all mean? Waggle dances? Colony Collapse disorder?

BUT then again-
Maybe it’s all just about LOVE, SWEET LOVE!
