DESCRIPTION

Zooey highlights artists whose work is inspired by the animal. Real and fantastical, animals have
existed within our cultural imagery for thousands of years. The artists featured in this exhibition carry on this tradition whether in painting or in sculpture, some using humor, others in a more spiritual way, often referring to mythology. Many personify the animal as a glimpse into how we see ourselves. Like visiting a zoo, this exhibiton offers an entertaining insight into the animal kingdom, but unlike most zoos, admission is free of charge.
