Wild Things: Animals Real and Imagined
September 8, 2021 - September 12, 2021
Our pets and nature got us through the last year. Now, the Rocky Neck Art Colony wants to honor feathered, finned and furred friends with a special exhibition titled Wild Things: Animals Real and Imagined, on display through September 12 at The Cultural Center at Rocky Neck.
Sixty works are on display including more than 14 sculptures, nine photographs, a selection of digital art as well as paintings, drawings and prints. Artists are from Oregon, Colorado, Louisiana and New England.
Juror Barbara Moody says that making a selection from almost 200 entries was quite the challenge: “I chose the most intriguing works that fit the theme of Wild Things: Known and Imagined,” says Moody. “Ultimately, I was forced to omit most of the domestic animals, birds and scenic environments even though they could be considered ‘wild.’ I was attracted most by those works that were unusual, curious, provocative and/or unique.
Participating artists include: Linda Bourke, Laurinda Butcher, Matt Cegelis, Janice Charles, Yhanna Coffin, Isabella DeLia, Maria Denjongpa, Nancy Dudley, Barbe Ennis, Erin Garrett-Metz, Lisa Goren, Robert Grady, Nygel Jones, Tim Karoleff, Elizabeth Kayl, Steven Kratka, Amelia Leonards, Christopher Lovely, Jana Matusz, Dillian McGahey, Brian Murphy, Karie O’Donnell, Olivia Parker, Morgan Petitpas, Liese Ricketts, Joyce Roessler, Amy Ross, Constance Saems, Jon Sarkin, Lynne Sausele, Darcy Scanlon Moulton, Deb Schradieck, Elaine Seidel, Sophia Shultz, Brad Story, Derrick Te Paske, Len Thomas-Vickory, Stacy Thomas-Vickory, Mandy Torres, Helen Tory, Juni Van Dyke, Karen Watson, Jaclyn Withers, Lulu Wootton, and Claire Wyzenbeek.
Hours: Thursday noon to 8 PM; Friday through Sunday noon to 5 PM
