Storytelling through the ages has enlisted anthropomorphic animals to deliver cautionary tales to adults and children alike, instilling morals and ideals through folk and fairytales. Talking Creatures features the work of four artists who have adopted this narrative device to communicate the intricacies of human nature and behaviour as well as ethics and shared narratives. In most cases their artworks further seek to highlight the human/ animal connection, the cross species bond and demonstrate the value that animals can bring to human well-being.
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 5, 6 – 8:30pm
