The Crow Show

The Crow Show Exhibition ran from December 11th-29th.

Competition entry closing date 7th December (3rd December for Digital pieces) - FREE ENTRY

To celebrate the performance of  The Clockwork Crow at Volcano Theatre this December (and following on from the successful public competitions earlier in the year) Volcano is delighted to announce an open art competition and exhibition … all about Crows!

All kinds of artistic entries were welcome – as long as the focus of the piece was a crow or crows! From textiles, costumes, paintings, photographs, videos, sculptures, glass, puppets, drawings and collages to illustrated poems. The aim was to fill Volcano’s Seaside Gallery space  in the High Street with crows of all kinds!

Here are the winners!
