The Joy of Birds, the year-long focus of the Cable Natural History Museum welcomes The Cable Hayward Area Arts Council's (CHARAC) juried art exhibit this summer. The art exhibit title, "From a Bird's Eye View" was especially chosen to support the Museum's theme for the year, "The Joy of Birds: Feathers in Focus".
The art exhibit will be held at the Cable Natural History Museum in Cable from August 10 through September 24, 2011 with an opening reception to be held on August 12.
Paintings, photographs, fiber arts, and sculpture, selected to be included in a Bird Eye View will champion the overlapping missions of the Cable Natural History Museum and Cable - Hayward Area Arts Council to: attract and educate visitors to CNHM by showcasing the work of artists around environmental themes, promote a deeper understanding of the environment through the viewing of artists' interpretations in a variety of media, enhance and enrich cultural development and awareness of the Cable art community, and stimulate the interest of regional artists in creating work that fosters appreciation and stewardship of the environment.
Artists are submitting up to three images work of their on a CD. Those selected by the juror will be asked to submit their piece to the Museum by August 8. The top three will receive cash prizes of $100, $75, or $50 to be given at the reception.
