“Until one has loved an animal a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” -Anatole France

The late spring show is an homage to the kingdom Animalia: the furry, the feathered, the slimy, and the scaled; the creatures of the land, the sea, and the sky. Throughout mythology, animals have come to represent all aspects of human nature including our compassion, our cunning, and our cruelty. To mirror our love, fear and wonder of the animal kingdom, artists are invited to celebrate the critters that share our planet, capture our imagination, and steal our hearts.

We will be accepting artwork for this show on Friday, April 27th, and Saturday, April 28th from 11-5 either day.

Opening Reception: Friday, May 4th, 6-8 PM @ CAL
