A Must Do!
Anderson Art Gallery
Starting with the cave paintings of
Altamira, the depiction of animals has spanned the fantastic to the
scientific. The four artists that have been selected for this exhibition
all share a strong concern that the connectivity between humanity and
the natural world has been broken or lost.
The methods used to portray this idea
of a world out of balance vary with each artist. John Pusateri in his
meticulous lithography details the tragedy of dead songbirds. Exacting
photorealism is counterbalanced in the works of Larassa Kabel, by what
appears to be a stallion in freefall. Natural Order by Rachel Meuler
portrays a world of unnatural growth and unbound metamorphosis.
Chimerical creatures populate the introspective and mythic ceramics
presented by Adrian Arleo.
Animals have always played a significant role in artistic expression,
from Audubon to totemic representation. The curator for this exhibition,
Leigh Craven, has gathered together these works of art that strike a
cautionary note in humanities unbalanced approach to nature.

& Exhibitions Manager, Jay Block.

from the New York Hilton Hotel, to the World Famous
Magic Castle in Hollywood, California, as well as on

to his shows. He views his show as a conversation with
an audience rather than a performance for them. He

they could. He swings stuff, smashes stuff, and makes
