From the first examples of artistic expression—cave paintings, masks, headdresses, drinking vessels, sacred objects—representations of animals have been central. Our ancestors had a closer relationship with their fellow creatures, but even today, artists find an undeniable connection to the animal kingdom they co-inhabit. July’s exhibit showcases work of the wild world, the domesticated world, the fellow inhabitants that inspire awe, haunt our imaginations, and celebrate the myriad life forms on our small planet. Featuring the Kiln Club.
