The Q.C.'s newest art gallery, Genome is paying special attention to chicken in its latest exhibit. More than 15 artists - Cleonique Hilsaca, Erich Moffitt, Hanna Yata, Henry Schreiber, Scott Partridge and more - submitted works for the showcase after being given one word from which to base a single piece. Not sure why the feathered fowls were chosen, but the results (such as the pictured painting by Tripper Dungan) are pretty damn impressive. Who knew poultry musings could be cranked out on canvas so creatively? Think about that next time you fill your belly with some wings.
