Oh Canada</p> <p>edmonton_wz_2013</p> <p>What more can we say about the Edmonton Valley Zoo&rsquo;s stubborn refusal to do right by Lucy? This profoundly social female Asian elephant has lived alone for thirtysix long years in the zoo&rsquo;s tiny enclosure, locked away for much of the year due to Alberta&rsquo;s bitterly cold climate. Neither worldwide furor over Lucy&rsquo;s cruel confinement, or the sound decisions by two other Canadian zoos to send their elephants to warmer climates, has moved zoo or Edmonton officials to move toward meeting Lucy&rsquo;s social and physical needs. Lucy suffers from chronic arthritis and foot problems, displays abnormal stereotypic behavior, and is managed with an outdated circus-style method using bullhooks. Further, the zoo refuses to allow an independent veterinarian to examine Lucy, and CAZA&mdash;the zoo&rsquo;s accrediting body&mdash;won&rsquo;t stand up for her. Lucy&rsquo;s only hope now hinges on whether new city councillors show reason and compassion for her.</p> <p>The Edmonton Valley Zoo appears for the fourth time on IDA&rsquo;s list.</p> Sun, 17 Aug 2014 13:05:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list Four times Edmonton Valley Zoo made the list and now we proudly stand as the second worst zoo in the world.

They said I made too much noise but I was encouraged too cheer. Meredith said i didn&rsquo;t pay and i had a receipt. I didn&rsquo;t follow protocol when i asked my question,&rdquo;How does a solitary &nbsp;artist get an audience?&rdquo;</p> <p>Ani showed and walked me to the bathroom. I thought maybe he was going to act nice. But two giant female guards walked me out of the&nbsp;BR and 6 large males were escorting me up the stairs.</p> <p>Wasn&rsquo;t I acting wealthy enough? But I was going &nbsp;to be, Anik I just need a litle help, right Bob.</p> </div> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 19:47:11 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list A Home is not a Home Without a Newfie Dog <p>/barbaragreenemannandlucy.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/1-dscf3686.jpg</p> Mon, 07 Jul 2014 04:28:26 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list Drawings-for-and-about-eating=disorderhtml <p>http://barbara-greene.blogspot.ca/2013/02/drawings-for-and-about-eating-disorder.html</p> Fri, 08 Feb 2013 12:19:06 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list Faux Zoo Map <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> <img src="http://dbprng00ikc2j.cloudfront.net/userimages/58427/2i5z/20120208051230-P1000746.JPG" height=".5" alt="lady with gator hat" width=".5" /><img src="http://dbprng00ikc2j.cloudfront.net/userimages/58427/2i5z/20120208054132-P1000746.JPG" height="283" alt="jpeg" width="219" style="margin: 10px; vertical-align: middle;" /></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>I started this painting  for a show I couldn't afford to submit to but the topic was how we used  stuff up and what was the resulting  mess.Well  no clue in mind, ok., a nice face, 6 " from top of page, a-ha, a hat, ridiculous, a gator hat.  Losing a lot of gators and we should as they come onto the streets of florida and will eat your dog, unless thedog runs fast. Gorillas are disappearing, kangaroos well I haven't a notion. Eventually they all disappered.  This was the solution.</p> <p>Faux Zoo Map</p> <p>The Lady with the Gator Hat thought it was so delightful to view the new zoological exhibits as she traveled around the globe. Every beast was stuffed, and she thought it was so nice to pet them all. She purchased exact replicas of the ones in the zoo. She already had a collection in her cabin on the cruise ship. She wondered what happened to all those animals. Oh well, the new ones were so much easier to care for.</p> Wed, 08 Feb 2012 05:48:42 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list http://www.artslant.com/ny/Articles/list
