Roq La Rue Gallery "Tiger Tiger Burning Bright" Group Show COVERED

Audrey Kawasaki

Mark Ryden

Travis Louie

Yumiko Kayukawa

The ITRPF street team did it again for you. Pictures from the "Tiger Tiger Burning Bright" Group Show. Enjoy. Sorry I dont know all the artists of the exact paintings, but it is an outstanding body of work.

A group show based around the theme of tigers, inspired by the dynamic poem " The Tiger" by visionary artist and painter William Blake.
Additionally, 2010 is the Year of the Tiger in the Chinese calendar, and the animal is a very visible example of the environmental problem of habitat loss and rampant poaching, with the reported last wild Indochinese tiger being killed and eaten in December 2009.
We've asked a group of artists to create works inspired by this majestic, tragic, and beautiful creature, whether on a symbolic, metaphysical, or archetypal level or as a touchstone for deep contemporary issues.

In addition to original works, we will also be offering prints by Audrey Kawasaki and Robert Burden available exclusively to walk ins the night of the opening. ALL proceeds from the sale of these prints will be donated to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Wildlife Conservation Society earmarked for tiger conservation efforts. Prints will be cash only please (NO credit cards) and the info will be posted on the news section of our website. If you can not make the show you may request to be on a waiting list for any prints that may be available after the opening.

Artists: Audrey Kawasaki, Robert Hardgrave, Travis Louie, Lisa Petrucci, Isabel Samaras, Robert Burden, Jason D'Aquino, Nouar, Jim Blanchard, Angelique Houtcamp, Bob Dob, Anthony Ausgang, Ann-Marie Manker, Yumiko Kayukawa, Jaw Cooper, and more...
