"For thousands of years, humans have brought creatures to life in stories, songs, and artworks. Real and fantastic beasts have been used to illustrate everything from ancient beliefs and fables to 1950s monster movies and modern day science fiction works. Imaginative variations in nature and science have always intrigued, fascinated, amused and sometimes even scared us."
"This exhibition presents paintings and sculptures by six artists that take their inspiration from the natural world. Some of them have taken an anthropomorphic approach by placing animals in human situations or wild critters in intricately painted formal portraits. Other artists have invented species and fantasies by creating paintings reminiscent of scientific illustration or sculpting other-worldly life-forms from mood or fiber materials."
"Whether creepy or cute, real or surreal, these artworks are sure to impart a sense of wonder and strangeness to the viewer. Enter this fanciful world and explore these artists' stories and artworks in this Creature Feature
