Tempera artist Ed Chan hangs his picture “The Long and Crooked Road” at the Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery for the Ravens Crows and Gulls show.

Ravens Crows and Gulls opened Sept. 7 at the gallery and runs until Sept. 30.

“A popular symbol, harbingers of many myths, the carrion birds seem to hold a powerful fascination for artists, resulting in their images being explored in many different mediums,” according to the gallery’s website.

Visit the Waterfront Gallery during the month of September, and you will find these birds in paintings, glass, jewelry, cards and more — some serious, some humorous, some whimsical.

“These fascinating, mischievous and resourceful birds will captive the viewer,” states Kathy Holmes, president of the Ladysmith Arts Council.

The Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery is open seven days a week from noon to 4 p.m. at 610 Oyster Bay Dr. For more information, click here.
