Lost Animals is a unique exhibition about extinction by the environmental artist T.C. Moore. This mixed media exhibition presents extinction in a way that as never been seen before. Evocative, subtle and ethereal the art begs the question will our future biosphere be reduced to tiny vials, display cases and specimens under glass. The exhibition features a powerful installation of a small herd of life size Quagga made from horse hair. The Quagga extinct in the wild since 1878 is a subspecies of the plains zebra. When you walk around and through this delicate herd it is like you are walking amongst ghosts. There are numerous abstract sculptures made from fur, feathers, wood, antlers and pine cones that demonstrate what T.C. Moore states as the “relationship between animals and their ecological niches.” A wall piece created with vintage traveling mirrors are etched with animal figures and features making it difficult for the viewer to simultaneously look at the etching and at the same time look at oneself. Lost Animals is a poignant and compelling exhibition because it provides a link to animals that are now extinct or on the verge of disappearing from the face of the earth. It is an exhibition that brings the past to life, while asking us about what kind of future we will want to leave behind.
T.C Moore’s art has been exhibited across the United States in solo and juried exhibitions. She has taught drawing, watercolour, process media and methods at Berkeley City College, UC Berkeley Extension, as well as, the University of Oregon in the School of Architecture and Allied Arts. Her travels have included studies at the Glasgow School of Art, as well as, teaching a field studies seminar in Italy’s Veneto region. She earned a MFA in Studio Arts from JFK University in Berkeley. Her work questions the definitions and boundaries of drawing, painting, sculpture and fiber arts and she encourages you to look at her web-site www.topazemoore.com.

The goal of the Lucid Art Residency Program is to provide emerging and established artists a serene, retreat-like environment for creative exploration inspired by living in nature. This exhibition illustrates the work made during the artist’s residency. Typically, for a period of three weeks the Lucid Art Foundation provides living and studio space for the artist[s], as well as, access to the Foundations extensive library. During the residency, artists meet with a prominent artist and educator who discussed and give feedback on the work created. The Lucid Art Foundation encouraged contemplative nonfigurative exploration through automatism, multi-media, conceptual, eco-art and interdisciplinary approaches. Inquiry into arts and consciousness is at the heart of the Foundation's vision and our residency program. The artists represented in this years residency show are: Chokyiosel Rinpoche, Dimitra Skandali, Vera Ximenes, Elizabeth Thorp, Babette Sange, Amy Ho, Zen Du, Catherine Richardson, Jenifer Kent and Katrien Vermeire.
The Lucid Art Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit Private Operating Foundation that was co-founded in the fall of 1998 by Robert Anthoine, Fariba Bogzaran, and Gordon Onslow Ford in order to explore the relationship between art, consciousness and nature through art exhibitions, publications and seminars. The Lucid Art Foundation initiates and develops projects that educate and support the exploration of inner worlds and expand the concept of Lucid Art. These projects are part of the Foundation's five main programs: Exhibitions, Residencies, Seminars, Publications and Collection Management.
