The mass art/ multimedia show, Ghosts of Gone Birds, featuring a number of the finest poets, painters, sculptors, illustrators and musicians, in the land, has found a roost. The work can be seen from the 2nd to the 23rd November at the Rochelle School in London’s East End. Each artist chose a bird that had been made extinct to record, to publicise the loss of bird species around the world. The work looks exquisite: this is obviously a tiny sample of what will be there. Visit this, review this, tell your friends. It is perhaps one of the most accessible art shows you could go to. Despite being, to an extent, about death.

Note: Today, 0n 11/11/05, The cash box for sales of prints, from this exhibition, was stolen from the Rochelle School. For the sake of a worthwhile charity, maybe head down there tomorrow, or click on the link here, below to maybe help them make that up? The painting here, is by the young illustrator, Jack Teagle, and it is also part of the show.
