Corvidae Family – Inspired Art by Local Artists
Family Corvidae is a group show presented in conjunction with “Escape From Audubon,” presented by our neighbors at Art at the Cave (108 East Evergreen Blvd., Vancouver) and featuring art by Cynthia Heise, Anne John, Bill Leigh, William Park, Kathi Rick, and Michael Smith. According to Cave co-founder Anne John, their show “is based on the little-known fact that the Audubon Society is named after a prolific artist who prolifically killed his subject matter in order to paint them. As a bird lover, the dichotomy is striking. Our intention is not to invite the disapproval of the Audubon Society, which does wonderful work saving and protecting avian creatures. However, as artists, we just can’t help ourselves sometimes.”

Angst Gallery showcases cultural events including art shows, musical performances, book launch parties, classes, workshops, and the monthly Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic. All art forms are valued. More than just a place to show art, Angst Gallery is also a safe space for community discussion, where all people are respected for who they are. We donate the use of the space to organizations that work for human rights and progressive social change such as Planned Parenthood, the YMCA/YWCA, Cascade AIDS Project, and the NAACP.
