Atomic Rooster - The Annual Cock Show

The Atomic Rooster hosts many interesting events including art events and the "Rooster" bar and restaurant is conveniently located on Bank St at Somerset St West in Ottawa.

September calendar
Most recently they hosted the "Cock Show" vernissage which I attended. It was a full house with over fifty creative versions and interpretations of the proud rooster (also known as a cockerel or cock, Gallus gallus).

You can look at the rooster art on the Atomic Rooster Facbook page (see below)  https://www.facebook.com/Atomic-Rooster-267649179945257/timeline/

The Cock Show runs from Sept 13 - Oct 18 and is a must-see exhibit. It is the Atomic Rooster's biggest and brightest show yet!

VOTE for your favorites by 'liking' the photo of the piece on the Atomic Rooster's facebook page The piece with the most online votes will be given a spot among the finalists from the Atomic Rooster's in-house voting.
