eyra recognizes that illustration is a hammer*. Illustration, like a hammer, has functionality - it is a visual means of communication for a large audience.
Can a hammer be beautiful? Some think so. And, like a hammer, illustration is also concerned with aesthetics and utilizes techniques that we also think of as fine art.
*Many thanks to D.B. Dowd for the excellent metaphor.

eyra strives to showcase not only beautiful and thought-provoking illustration, but to add to the greater cultural dialogue. With each exhibition, eyra sells original illustration, high-quality prints, and limited-edition projects that correspond to the theme and spirit of the show. The eyrapport is a text that accompanies each show. It includes a curatorial statement, catalog of images, as well as guest writers from fields that are outside of illustration.
