Out of Control: 2023 Exhibit

The Crawl is also thrilled to be presenting once again, a multi-venue, salon-style curated exhibition at the Cultch, Alternative Creations Studio, Strange Fellows Gallery, and the Pendulum Gallery.

The theme of this year’s exhibition is Out of Control and features 80 visual artists who have studios in the Eastside Arts District. It hints at breaking rules, being reckless, wild, unrestricted, affecting our daily lives and the world at large. At a time when we start to celebrate our freedom from the pandemic restrictions, it’s an opportunity to reclaim experiences that were denied, a chance to think outside the box and let go.

Works in this broad-reaching exhibition include painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video and other media.
