A Crash of Critters

A Parliment of Owls - Kate O'Leary

In case you couldn't tell, that's a parliment of owls playing Scrabble. Kate has a show opening at the Fill in the Blank Gallery (5038 N Lincoln, Chicago) of illustrations and plushies inspired by Terms of Venery (you know, specialized collective nouns for groups of animals, from the common ones like a herd of cows or a pride of lions, to the more obscure like the aforementioned parliment or, my favorite, a murder of crows). There's an opening recepition this Friday from 7-11 pm and then the show runs through the end of the year (I think).
